The structural, electronic and magnetic properties of TbMn(1-x)Co(x)O(3) (0.1 ≤ x ≤ 0.9) compounds are reported. The samples are isostructural to TbMnO(3) adopting the orthorhombic distorted perovskite structure (Pbnm), except for x = 0.4, 0.5 and 0.6, where an ordered double perovskite structure (P2(1)/n) is found. X-ray absorption spectra at the Mn and Co K edges show an incomplete charge transfer between Mn and Co atoms yielding a mixed valence state Mn(3+)/Mn(4+) and Co(3+)/Co(2+) for the whole series. Neutron powder diffraction measurements show the development of a ferromagnetic ground state for the intermediate compositions (0.3 ≤ x ≤ 0.6) indicating that the ferromagnetic superexchange Mn(4+)-O-Co(2+) interaction is the strongest among a wide set of competitive interactions. The ferromagnetic ordering is, however, not fully achieved and coexists with glassy magnetic properties. With increasing concentration of Co (x ≥ 0.7) the long range ordering vanishes and only a glassy magnetic behavior with slow dynamics is found. These properties could be related to the existence of magnetically inhomogeneous small clusters arising from competitive magnetic interactions.
