The experimental difficulties of observing Fe2+ Fe3+ charge order in Fe2 OBO3 and Fe3 O4 are different and are considered separately. Charge order in Fe3 O4 has a complex arrangement but is long-range coherent, as evidenced by a recent structure determination and two resonant x-ray diffraction studies. Long-range charge order has not been observed crystallographically in Fe2 OBO3, although there is substantial indirect evidence for Fe2+ Fe3+ ordering over shorter distances. Further support is provided by LSDA+U calculations on a doubled unit cell of Fe2 OBO3, which shows a charge separation similar to that in Fe3 O4, with a large t2g subshell occupancy difference that is partially screened by Fe-O covalency.
