Abstract: In this work, we have carried out a detailed study of the magnetic and structural properties of YFe1-xCrxO3 (0 <= x <= 1) samples with orthorhombic structure obtained by co-precipitation method. Analysis of X-ray diffraction data using Rietveld refinement show that all samples present an orthorhombic crystal system with space group Pnma. Besides, we have observed a reduction of unit cell volume with increasing of the Cr concentration. SEM images show the formation of grains of micrometer order. X-ray Absorption near edge spectroscopy (XANES) measurements show a shift of absorption edge which can be indicate there is (i) different oxidation states to Fe and Cr ions and/or (ii) a changing in the point symmetry of Fe and Cr ions to the compounds. The magnetization measurements indicate a continuous decreasing of the magnetic transition temperature as function of chromium doping. The reversal magnetization effect was observed to concentrations around x=0.5. Besides, the deviation of the Curie-Weiss law and a weak ferromagnetic behavior observed at room temperature in the M vs H curves can be attributed to the strong magnetic interactions between the transition metals with different oxidation states.
