Abstract
We report on the syntheses and characterizations of single crystalline and polycrystalline Sr2Co3S2O3 with a novel crystal structure type. It contains Co-O 2-leg rectangular ladders and necklace ladders. The two ladders share common legs and construct a hybrid spin ladder. A rare meridional heteroleptic octahedral coordination is found for the Co2+ ions in the 2-leg ladder. Within the necklace ladders, the Co2+ ions are in trans-octahedral coordination. An antiferromagnetic order is observed at T-N -267 K, while a broad maximum in magnetic susceptibility is found below T-N. This relatively high ordering temperature among Co-based ladder compounds is related to the highly anisotropic mer-coordination of the Co2+ ions. The trans-octahedrally coordinated Co2+ ions, on the other hand, corresponds to the possible short-range magnetic correlations through dimers with an effective S = 3/2. This results in a rare situation that spin ordering and spin dimers coexist down to 2 K.
