abstract Ca2Fe1-xMnxAlO5 (0 <= x <= 1) compounds were prepared by a self-combustion method under air (x = 0, 0.1, 0.2 and 0.3) and nitrogen (x = 0.5, 0.7 and 1.0). The samples prepared under nitrogen were Successfully oxidized after short annealing under air. Both X-ray powder diffraction (XRD) Rietveld analysis and electron diffraction revealed that all compounds adopt the brownmillerite-type structure. All samples present an overall antiferromagnetic behaviour and data from magnetic measurements and Mossbauer spectroscopy allowed to Conclude that the transition temperature decreases as Mn content increases for x 0.3 and increases in the case of the x >= 0.5 Compounds. Except for x = 1, chemical disorder due to the Occupancy of both octahedral and tetrahedral sites by different metals as well as the competition between different moments' orientation induce a complex magnetic behaviour characterized by magnetic frustration and canted antiferromagnetism. Mossbauer spectroscopy and chemical titrations also allowed to conclude about the preferential oxidation of Mn3+ over Fe3+, obtained by thermal treatment under air of the x = 0.5 and 0.7 compositions.
