Gadolinium Orthoferrite - GdFeO3


 


GeFeO3

Background Colour:

Preparing an ABO3 perovskite (pictured right) with a Lanthanide on the A cation site can cause distortion of the structure (pictured left). In GdFeO3 the vertex linked FeO6 octahedra are tilted around the Gd3+ ion allowing for better coordination.
