The magnetic susceptibility data in this figure can be well fitted with the Curie law: [chi] = [[chi].sub.0] + C/T, where C= N[[mu].sup.2.sub.eff]/3[k.sub.B] is the Curie constant, N is Avogadros's number, [[mu].sub.eff] is the effective magnetic moment ([[mu].sub.eff] = [P.sub.eff][[mu].sub.B]), represents the effective Bohr magneton number, [[mu].sub.B] is the Bohr magneton, [k.sub.B] is the Boltzmann constant, and [[chi].sub.0] is the temperature independent susceptibility term.
