RESUMO

External control over the mechanical function of materials is paramount in the development of nanoscale machines. Yet, exploiting changes in atomic behaviour to produce controlled scalable motion is a formidable challenge. Here, we present an ultra-flexible coordination framework material in which a cooperative electronic transition induces an extreme abrupt change in the crystal lattice conformation. This arises due to a change in the preferred coordination character of Fe(II) sites at different spin states, generating scissor-type flexing of the crystal lattice. Diluting the framework with transition-inactive Ni(II) sites disrupts long-range communication of spin state through the lattice, producing a more gradual transition and continuous lattice movement, thus generating colossal positive and negative linear thermal expansion behaviour, with coefficients of thermal expansion an order of magnitude greater than previously reported. This study has wider implications in the development of advanced responsive structures, demonstrating electronic control over mechanical motion.

RESUMO

Spin-crossover (SCO) triazole-based coordination polymers can be synthesized by micelle techniques, which almost always lead to rod-shaped nanoparticles. In order to notably reach new morphologies, we explore here the potentiality of the spray-drying (SD) method to get SCO materials. Three SCO coordination polymers and a mononuclear complex are investigated. In all cases, the SD method obtains particles definitely showing SCO. The features of the latter are yet always different from those of the referenced materials, in the sense that SCO is more gradual and incomplete, in adequacy with the poor crystallinity of the powders obtained by SD. In the case of coordination polymers, the particles are preferentially spherical. Indications of possible polymorphism and/or new materials induced by the use of the SD method are evidenced. In the case of the mononuclear complex, the SD method has allowed reproducing, in a quick and easy way, the well-known bulk compound. This exploratory work demonstrates the relevance of the concept and opens the way to a systematic scrutiny of all the experimental parameters to tune the size, morphology, and properties of the SD-synthesized SCO particles.

RESUMO

A four-stepped cascade of Fe(ii) high spin (HS) to low spin (LS) states is demonstrated in a family of 2-D Hofmann materials, [Fe3II(saltrz)6(MII(CN)4)3]·8(H2O) (MII = Pd (1Pd ), Pt (1Pt ); saltrz = (E)-2-(((4H-1,2,4-triazol-4-yl)imino)methyl)phenol). Alongside the fully HS and LS Fe(ii) states, fractional spin state stabilization occurs at HS/LS values of 5/6, 2/3, and 1/6. This unconventional spin state periodicity is driven by the presence of multiple spin crossover (SCO) active Fe(ii) sites which are in subtly distinct environments driven by a network of antagonistic host-host and host-guest interactions. Alternating long- and short-range magnetostructural ordering is achieved over the five distinct spin state ratios HS1.0LS0.0, HS0.833LS0.167, HS0.667LS0.333, HS0.167LS0.833, and HS0.0LS1.0 owing to the flexibility of this 2-D interdigitated lattice topology interconnected by intermolecular interactions. A distinct wave-like spin state patterning is structurally evidenced for each intermediate phase.

RESUMO

The Schiff-base condensation of the R,R-(+)-diamine () with 2,6-diacetyl pyridine in the presence of Fe(II) affords the macrocyclic complex [Fe(dpN3O2)(CN)2] () (dp = diphenyl) with ligand centred chirality comprising of a 1 : 1 mixture of LS 6- and HS 7-coordinate Fe(II) centres. Variable temperature magnetic susceptibility and Mössbauer studies reveal that () undergoes an incomplete thermal SCO transition with a T1/2 = 250 K as well as a LIESST effect. In contrast its racemic counterpart () comprises of mostly LS Fe(II) and exhibits no LIESST properties.

RESUMO

Few photoactive molecules undergo a complete transformation of physical properties (magnetism, optical absorption, etc.) when irradiated with light. Such phenomena can happen on the time scale of fundamental atomic motions leading to an entirely new state within less than 1 ps following light absorption. Spin crossover (SCO) molecules are prototype systems having the ability to switch between low spin (LS) and high spin (HS) molecular states both at thermal equilibrium and after light irradiation. In the case of Fe(II) (3d(6)) complexes in a nearly octahedral ligand field, the two possible electronic distributions among the 3d split orbitals are S = 0 for the LS diamagnetic state and S = 2 for the HS paramagnetic state. In crystals, such photoexcited states can be long-lived at low temperature, as is the case for the photoinduced HS state of the [Fe(phen)2(NCS)2] SCO compound investigated here. We first show how such bistability between the diamagnetic and paramagnetic states can be characterized at thermal equilibrium or after light irradiation at low temperature. Complementary techniques provide invaluable insights into relationships between changes of electronic states and structural reorganization. But the development of such light-active materials requires the understanding of the basic mechanism following light excitation of molecules, responsible for trapping them into new electronic and structural states. We therefore discuss how we can observe a photomagnetic molecule during switching and catch on the fly electronic and structural molecular changes with ultrafast X-ray and optical absorption spectroscopies. In addition, there is a long debate regarding the mechanism behind the efficiency of such a light-induced process. Recent theoretical works suggest that such speed and efficiency are possible thanks to the instantaneous coupling with the phonons of the final state. We discuss here the first experimental proof of that statement as we observe the instantaneous activation of one key phonon mode precluding any recurrence towards the initial state. Our studies show that the structural molecular reorganization trapping the photoinduced electronic state occurs in two sequential steps: the molecule elongates first (within 170 femtosecond) and bends afterwards. This dynamics is caught via the coherent vibrational energy transfer of the two main structural modes. We discuss the transformation pathway connecting the initial photoexcited state to the final state, which involves several key reaction coordinates. These results show the need to replace the classical single coordinate picture employed so far with a more complex multidimensional energy surface.

RESUMO

We study the basic mechanisms allowing light to photoswitch at the molecular scale a spin-crossover material from a low- to a high-spin state. Combined femtosecond x-ray absorption performed at LCLS X-FEL and optical spectroscopy reveal that the structural stabilization of the photoinduced high-spin state results from a two step structural trapping. Molecular breathing vibrations are first activated and rapidly damped as part of the energy is sequentially transferred to molecular bending vibrations. During the photoswitching, the system follows a curved trajectory on the potential energy surface.

RESUMO

The photomagnetic properties of a new Fe(II) macrocyclic family [Fe(L(xyz)N5)(CN)2]·nH2O were investigated with respect to the T(LIESST) versus T(1/2) relationship. These compounds are diamagnetic below 400 K with T(LIESST) values above 100 K, which indicates that this family presents an unconventional LIESST effect that is much higher than the expected T0 = 180 K line for macrocyclic complexes.

RESUMO

The expected 3D and 2D topologies resulting from combining approximately linear bis- or monopyridyl ligands with [Fe(II)M(II)(CN)4] (M(II) = Pt, Pd, Ni) 4,4-grid sheets are well established. We show here the magnetic and structural consequences of incorporating a bent bispyridyl linker ligand in combination with [Fe(II)Pt(II)(CN)4] to form the material [Fe(H2O)2Fe(DPSe)2(Pt(CN)4)2]·3EtOH (DPSe = 4,4'-dipyridylselenide). Structural investigations reveal an unusual connectivity loosely resembling a 3D Hofmann topology where (1) there are two distinct local iron(II) environments, [Fe(II)N6] (Fe1) and [Fe(II)N4O2] (Fe2), (2) as a consequence of axial water coordination to Fe2, there are "holes" in the [Fe(II)Pt(II)(CN)4] 4,4 sheets because of some of the cyanido ligands being terminal rather than bridging, and (3) bridging of adjacent sheets occurs only through one in two DPSe ligands, with the other acting as a terminal ligand binding through only one pyridyl group. The magnetic properties are defined by this unusual topology such that only Fe1 is in the appropriate environment for a high-spin to low-spin transition to occur. Magnetic susceptibility data reveal a complete and abrupt hysteretic spin transition (T(1/2)↓ = 120 K and T(1/2)↑ = 130 K) of this iron(II) site; Fe2 remains high-spin. This material additionally exhibits a photomagnetic response (uncommon for Hofmann-related materials), showing light-induced excited spin-state trapping [LIESST; T(LIESST) = 61 K] with associated bistability evidenced in a hysteresis loop (T(1/2)↓ = 60 K and T(1/2)↑ = 66 K).

RESUMO

Two oxazolidine nitroxide complexes of cobalt(II), [Co(II)(L(•))2](B(C6F5)4)2·CH2Cl2 (1) and [Co(II)(L(•))2](B(C6F5)4)2·2Et2O (2), where, L(•) is the tridentate chelator 4,4-dimethyl-2,2-bis(2-pyridyl)oxazolidine N-oxide, have been investigated by crystallographic, magnetic, reflectivity, and theoretical (DFT) methods. This work follows on from a related study on [Co(II)(L(•))2](NO3)2 (3), a multifunctional complex that simultaneously displays magnetic exchange, spin crossover, and single molecule magnetic features. Changing the anion and the nature of solvation in the present crystalline species leads to significant differences, not only between 1 and 2 but also in comparison to 3. Structural data at 123 and 273 K, in combination with magnetic data, show that at lower temperatures 1 displays low-spin Co(II)-to-radical exchange with differences in fitted J values in comparison to DFT (broken symmetry) calculated J values ascribed to the sensitive influence of a tilt angle (θ) formed between the Co(dz(2)) and the trans-oriented O atoms of the NO radical moieties in L(•). Spin crossover in 1 is evident at higher temperatures, probably influenced by the solvate molecules and crystal packing arrangement. Complex 2 remains in the high-spin Co(II) state between 2 and 350 K and undergoes antiferromagnetic exchange between Co-radical and radical-radical centers, but it is difficult to quantify. Calculations of the magnetic orbitals, eigenvalue plots, and the spin densities at the Co and radical sites in 1 and 2 have yielded satisfying details on the mechanism of metal-radical and radical-radical exchange, the radical spins being in π*NO orbitals.

RESUMO

Two new isostructural iron(II) spin-crossover (SCO) framework (SCOF) materials of the type [Fe(dpms)2(NCX)2] (dpms = 4,4'-dipyridylmethyl sulfide; X = S (SCOF-6(S)), X = Se (SCOF-6(Se))) have been synthesized. The 2D framework materials consist of undulating and interpenetrated rhomboid (4,4) nets. SCOF-6(S) displays an incomplete SCO transition with only approximately 30 % conversion of high-spin (HS) to low-spin iron(II) sites over the temperature range 300-4 K (T1/2 = 75 K). In contrast, the NCSe(-) analogue, SCOF-6(Se), displays a complete SCO transition (T1/2 = 135 K). Photomagnetic characterizations reveal quantitative light- induced excited spin-state trapping (LIESST) of metastable HS iron(II) sites at 10 K. The temperature at which the photoinduced stored information is erased is 58 and 50 K for SCOF-6(S) and SCOF-6(Se), respectively. Variable-pressure magnetic measurements were performed on SCOF-6(S), revealing that with increasing pressure both the T1/2 value and the extent of spin conversion are increased; with pressures exceeding 5.2 kbar a complete thermal transition is achieved. This study confirms that kinetic trapping effects are responsible for hindering a complete thermally induced spin transition in SCOF-6(S) at ambient pressure due to an interplay between close T1/2 and T(LIESST) values.

RESUMO

The effects of metal dilution on the spin-crossover behavior of iron(II) in the mixed crystal series [Fe(x)Zn(1-x)(bpp)2](NCSe)2 (bpp = 2,6-bis(pyrazol-3-yl)pyridine) have been studied using magnetic susceptibility, photomagnetism and diffuse reflectivity measurements. For each mixed-crystal system, the thermal spin transition temperature, T(1/2), and the relaxation temperature of the photo-induced high-spin state, T(LIESST), have been systematically determined. It appears that T(1/2) decreases with the metal dilution while T(LIESST) remains unchanged. Dilution also tends to decrease the hysteresis width and smooth the transition curves. These effects were discussed first qualitatively and then quantitatively on the basis of a kinetic study governing the photo-induced back conversion taking into account the relative sizes of Zn(II) and Fe(II) ions. Interestingly, single crystals were obtained for [Fe(0.6)Zn(0.4)(bpp)2](NCSe)2 allowing the X-ray diffraction crystal-structure determination.

RESUMO

The two-step spin crossover in mononuclear iron(III) complex [Fe(salpm)2 ]ClO4 ⋅0.5 EtOH (1) is shown to be accompanied by a structural phase transition as concluded from (57) Fe Mössbauer spectroscopy and single crystal X-ray diffraction, with spin-state ordering on just one of two sub-lattices in the intermediate magnetic and structural phase. The complex also exhibits thermal- and light-induced spin-state trapping (TIESST and LIESST), and relaxation from the LIESST and TIESST excited states occurs via the broken symmetry intermediate phase. Two relaxation events are evident in both experiments, that is, two T(LIESST) and two T(TIESST) values are recorded. The change in symmetry which accompanies the TIESST effect was followed in real time using single crystal diffraction. After flash freezing at 15 K the crystal was warmed to 40 K at which temperature superstructure reflections were observed to appear and disappear within a 10 000 s time range. In the frame of the international year of crystallography, these results illustrate how X-ray diffraction makes it possible to understand complex ordering phenomena.

RESUMO

The spin state of [Fe(H2B(pz)2)2(bipy)] thin films is mediated by changes in the electric field at the interface of organic ferroelectric polyvinylidene fluoride with trifluoroethylene (PVDF-TrFE). Signatures of the molecular crossover transition are evident in changes in the unoccupied states and the related shift from diamagnetic to paramagnetic characteristics. This may point the way to the molecular magneto-electric effect on devices.

RESUMO

Vibrational spectra of the spin crossover (SCO) polymers [Fe(NH2trz)3](X)2·nH2O where NH2trz = 4-NH2-1,2,4-triazole and X = Cl, Br, BF4, and NO3 have been analyzed. Our results show that the anions and water molecules have no significant influence on the vibrational properties of the Fe(NH2-trz)3 polymer chains. A detailed study of the nitrate derivative, based on the DFT analysis of the polarized spectra of single crystals, has been undertaken to propose the normal mode assignment of the Raman peaks in the low spin state of the compound. Changes in the Raman spectra in the high spin state could therefore be analyzed and interpreted by several Raman bands identified as molecular probes of the SCO phenomenon. Various factors (laser power, humidity, pressure) that influence the transition temperatures and the hysteresis loops have been identified and adjusted for obtaining reliable measurements. We demonstrate in particular that all the techniques used to probe the phase transition process give comparable results providing that the sample environment is well controlled.

RESUMO

The syntheses, crystallography and magnetic properties of a series of compounds of formula trans-[Fe(II)(L(1))2(NCX)2] (X = S, Se, BH3 (1-3)), cis-[Fe(II)(L(2))(NCX)2]·CH2Cl2 (X = S, Se, BH3 (4-6)) and trans-[Fe(II)(L(3))(NCX)2]n (X = S, Se (7-8)) are described (L(1) = 6-chloro-N(2),N(2)-diethyl-N(4),N(4)-di(pyridin-2-yl)-1,3,5-triazine-2,4-diamine, L(2) = 6,6'-(1,4,10,13-tetraoxa-7,16-diazacyclooctadecane-7,16-diyl)bis(N(2),N(2)-diethyl-N(4),N(4)-di(pyridin-2-yl)-1,3,5-triazine-2,4-diamine, L(3) = 6,6'-(1,4,10,13-tetraoxa-7,16-diazacyclooctadecane-7,16-diyl)bis(N(2),N(2),N(4),N(4)-tetra(pyridin-2-yl)-1,3,5-triazine-2,4-diamine)). The magnetostructural properties of 1-8 have been probed in detail by variable temperature magnetic measurements and crystallographic methods. 1-6 display mononuclear structures while 7 and 8 form 1-D chain structures. Complexes 4-6 have the potential to form 1D-chains via L(2) bridging, but instead form mononuclear complexes. Magnetic studies show that complexes 1, 2, and 4 remain in the high-spin (HS) state at all temperatures. An aged, dry, powdered sample of 3 gives an abrupt HS to LS transition (T1/2 = 200 K), while a freshly prepared, powdered sample of 3·1.5H2O displays thermal hysteresis (Δ = 7 K). Complexes 5, 6 and 7 undergo a gradual spin transition with T1/2 values of 100 K, 150 K and 130 K, respectively. Cooperativity parameters are compared, with 3 showing cooperativity (positive C) and 5 and 6 showing anticooperativity. Photomagnetic LIESST (light induced excited spin state trapping) studies were performed on complexes 5 and 6 and reveal T(LIESST) values lower than 60 K. An attempt has been made to understand the electronic structure of complex 3 and its cooperativity behaviour using density functional methods, the calculations reproducing the sign and, in part, the magnitude of the cooperativity.

RESUMO

The pressure dependencies of the lattice parameters of the spin transition compound [Fe(PM-BiA)2(NCS)2] have been derived from neutron powder diffraction measurements at low temperature. The study of the compound [Fe(PM-BiA)2(NCS)2]-pI has first confirmed the atypical spin crossover behaviour under pressure of this compound that shows a pressure induced structural transition inducing the transformation into a different polymorph, [Fe(PM-BiA)2(NCS)2]-pII. This phenomenon avoids a first-order spin transition in favour of continuous transition around 0.75 GPa at ambient temperature. Low temperature measurements under pressure up to 1.07 GPa allowed us not only to describe the spin-crossover for both polymorphs but also to reach phase-diagram regions where both polymorphs co-exist in different spin-states. Finally, the reversibility of the structural variations has been demonstrated.

RESUMO

The insertion of a [Fe(sal2-trien)](+) complex cation into a 2D oxalate network in the presence of different solvents results in a family of hybrid magnets with coexistence of magnetic ordering and photoinduced spin-crossover (LIESST effect) in compounds [Fe(III)(sal2-trien)][Mn(II)Cr(III)(ox)3]·CHCl3 (1·CHCl3), [Fe(III)(sal2-trien)][Mn(II)Cr(III)(ox)3]·CHBr3 (1·CHBr3), and [Fe(III)(sal2-trien)][Mn(II)Cr(III)(ox)3]·CH2Br2 (1·CH2Br2). The three compounds crystallize in a 2D honeycomb anionic layer formed by Mn(II) and Cr(III) ions linked through oxalate ligands and a layer of [Fe(sal2-trien)](+) complexes and solvent molecules (CHCl3, CHBr3, or CH2Br2) intercalated between the 2D oxalate network. The magnetic properties and Mössbauer spectroscopy indicate that they undergo long-range ferromagnetic ordering at 5.6 K and a spin crossover of the intercalated [Fe(sal2-trien)](+) complexes at different temperatures T1/2. The three compounds present a LIESST effect with a relaxation temperature TLIESST inversely proportional to T1/2. The isostructural paramagnetic compound, [Fe(III)(sal2-trien)][Zn(II)Cr(III)(ox)3]·CH2Cl2 (2·CH2Cl2) was also prepared. This compound presents a partial spin crossover of the inserted Fe(III) complex as well as a LIESST effect. Finally, spectroscopic characterization of the Fe(III) doped compound [Ga0.99Fe0.01(sal2trien)][Mn(II)Cr(III)(ox)3]·CH2Cl2 (3·CH2Cl2) shows a gradual and complete thermal spin crossover and a LIESST effect on the isolated Fe(III) complexes. This result confirms that cooperativity is not a necessary condition to observe the LIESST effect in an Fe(III) compound.

RESUMO

Two new complexes belonging to the family [Fe(II)(L)2(NCX)2] have been synthesized and structurally characterized. Complexation of the ligand L(O) = 2,5-di(2-pyridyl)-1,3,4-oxadiazole results in the formation of two derivatives of [Fe(II)(L(O))2(NCS)2] (1) with the common s-trans and the rarely observed s-cis conformation. No thermal spin crossover (SCO) was observed for the amorphous bulk material of the mixture. Using the new ligand L(Se) = 2,5-di(2-pyridyl)-1,3,4-selenadiazole, compound [Fe(II)(L(Se))2(NCS)2]·1.4DCM·0.6MeOH (2·1.4DCM·0.6MeOH) was structurally characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction. Bulk material of [Fe(II)(L(Se))2(NCS)2]·MeOH (2·MeOH) exhibits a thermally induced SCO with small hysteresis [T(1/2)(↓) = 91 K, T(1/2)(↑) = 96 K]. LIESST and reflectivity studies have been performed on the SCO complexes [Fe(II)(L(S))2(NCS)2], [Fe(II)(L(S))2(NCSe)2], [Fe(II)(L(S))2(NCBH3)2]·H2O [L(S) = 2,5-di(2-pyridyl)-1,3,4-thiadiazole], and 2·MeOH. All complexes belong to the T0 = 90 K line [T(LIESST) = T0 - 0.3T(1/2)]. [Fe(II)(L(S))2(NCS)2], that exhibits a two-stepped thermal SCO process, has been found to also exhibit two well-separated T(LIESST) temperatures [T(LIESST, 1) = 44 K; T(LIESST, 2) = 53 K].

RESUMO

The novel hexadentate nitrogen based ligand N,N'-bis-(2-(1H-pyrazol-1-yl)pyridine-6-ylmethyl)-2,2'-biphenylenediamine (3) was synthesized and used for the preparation of iron Spin Crossover (SCO) complexes [Fe(3)][BF4]2 (4) and [Fe(3)][ClO4]2 (5), which differ only by the respective counter ion. These complex salts show different spin transition temperatures T(1/2) (135 and 157 K, respectively). This effect was studied by the investigation of the solid state structure of different low- and high-spin isomers. All complexes of this series show closely related crystal packing regardless of the counter ion, metal (Zn/Fe) and spin state. The isomer exhibiting the lower transition temperature (4) was also investigated in respect to its photomagnetic behaviour. The LIESST process could be monitored for this complex, but no reverse-LIESST was observed. The relaxation of the photo-induced state occurs at ca. 80 K, showing a complex, three-state relaxation mechanism.
