Structural studies have been conducted on a series of β-pyrochlore materials using primarily X-ray and powder neutron diffraction techniques. Mössbauer Spectroscopy and

have also been performed to determine the oxidation states of Fe and the magnetic

family exhibiting a general formula of AM2F6 which exhibit both charge order and disorder on the transition metal crystallographic site. A newly developed soft chemistry

materials. Finally, this work reports a possible charge ordered AM2F6 material exhibiting conventional spin-glass like magnetic behaviour similar to reported materials.
