Large high quality single crystals of several compounds of the new family of frustrated magnetic oxides SrR2O4 where R = Dy, Er, Ho and their nonmagnetic analogues with R = Lu, Y have been synthesized by the floating zone technique. The magnetic rare earth ions in these compounds are linked to each other through a network of hexagons and triangles reminiscent of the honeycomb lattice. Initial characterization measurements show that geometrical frustration plays an important role in the formation of the magnetic ground states in these systems. The single crystals grown are suitable for more detailed investigations, especially those using neutron scattering techniques.
