Influence of Temperature Independent Contribution of Magnetic Susceptibility on the Curie-Weiss Law
A fitting procedure of the Curie-Weiss law, eliminating the temperature independent contribution (0) from the experimental susceptibility data, was used for determination of the magnetic parameters, i.e. a Curie constant, a Curie-Weiss temperature and an effective magnetic moment, because the theoretical considerations showed that the Curie-Weiss law is invalid for 0 0, even small. This method revealed for the HgCo(NCS)4 paramagnet, commonly accepted as a magnetic susceptibility standard, 0 = 2.43710-6 cm3/g, while for the ZnCr2Se4 antiferromagnet, known as a matrix of various diluted systems, – 0 = -2.56610-6 cm3/g, for comparison.
