First-principles calculations reveal that in divalent europium perovskites EuMO3 (M = Ti, Zr, and Hf), antiferomagnetic superexchange interactions via nd states of the B-site M cations (n = 3, 4, and 5, respectively) are enhanced by rotations of the MO6 octahedra. The octahedral rotations involved in a structural change from cubic equation imageto orthorhombic Pbnm structures point the M nd orbitals at the Eu sites, leading to a significant overlap between the M nd and Eu 4f orbitals.
