Abstract

Abstract A simple explanation is given of the unusual behavior of CuCl 2 · 2H 2O, which has a Néel temperature of 4.33°K but a broad maximum in the magnetic susceptibility at about 4.8°K. The explanation is based upon the fact that in CuCl 2 · 2H 2O the strongest interaction exists only in linear chains, and hence it is not as effective in determining the long-range order as it is in determining the short-range order.
