To complete a study of LaRuO 3-based phases, a series of LaRu xFe 1- xO 3 solid solutions was prepared with the orthorhombic GdFeO 3-type perovskite structure. Electrical, magnetic, crystallographic, and Mössbauer data were taken. Metallic conductivity is destroyed by substitution of as little as 10% Fe for Ru. Mössbauer and magnetic data show the presence of only high-spin octahedral Fe 3+. At the Fe-rich end, Ru decreases T N of LaFeO 3 by ≈ 100°C for every 10% of Ru.
