In this work, we have investigated stable half-metallic materials of the double perovskites Sr2B B'O6: Sr2Cr(Co) B'O6 (B' = Y, La, Zr and Hf) and Sr2V(Fe) B'O6 (B' = Zr and Hf). Based on the density functional theory, the calculations are conducted with full structural optimization. Generalized gradient approximation (GGA) and additional correlation effect (GGA+U) are used. In the GGA+U scheme, the energy gaps of Sr2CoZrO6 are opened in both spin-channels and become ferromagnetic insulators (FM-Is); Sr 2CoZrO6, Sr2CoHfO6, Sr 2FeZrO6, and Sr2FeHfO6 transfer from low-spin state to high-spin state. The half metallicity are attributed by the double-exchange interaction mechanism via the B(t2g)-O(2p)-B'(t 2g) π-bounding. Crown
