Abstract: Little is known regarding the structure and properties of technetium oxides. This is mainly due to the absence of any naturally occurring Tc isotopes and the radioactivity of those available [1]. Tc oxides are important since 99Tc is found in nuclear waste and has a long half-life (2.13 × 105 yr). Tc is a 4d element, and like its lighter analogue Mn a 3d element it can adopt a number of oxidation states. 3d oxides are generally, but not always magnetic, while 4d and 5d oxides, with their more spatially extended d-orbitals tend not to be magnetic although SrRuO3 [2] is a notable exception. Here we have combined synchrotron X-ray and neutron diffraction to examine the structure of CaTcO3, SrTcO3 and Pb2Tc2O7-d. The only previous report on these materials was by Muller, White and Roy in 1964 [3]. They reported the existence of these materials and suggested the CaTcO3 and SrTcO3 were orthorhombic whereas the Pb2Tc2O7-d was reported as being pyrochlore. This earlier work concentrated on syn-thesis hence little is known about these three compounds and there has been no study of their structures or magnetic properties. © International Union of Crystallography
