The present article is devoted to the characterization of the structural phase transitions of the [CH3NH3][Co(COOH)3] (1) perovskite-like metal-organic compound through variable-temperature single-crystal neutron diffraction. At room temperature, compound 1 crystallizes in the orthorhombic space group Pnma (phase I). A decrease in temperature gives rise to a first phase transition from the space group Pnma to an incommensurate phase (phase II) at approximately 128 K. At about 96 K, this incommensurate phase evolves into a second phase with a sharp change in the modulation vector (phase III). At lower temperatures (ca 78 K), the crystal structure again becomes commensurate and can be described in the monoclinic space group P21/n (phase IV). Although phases I and IV have been reported previously [Boca et al. (2004). Acta Cryst. C60, m631-m633; Gómez-Aguirre et al. (2016). J. Am. Chem. Soc. 138, 1122-1125; Mazzuca et al. (2018). Chem. Eur. J. 24, 388-399], phases III and IV corresponding to the Pnma(00γ)0s0 space group have not yet been described. These phase transitions involve not only the occurrence of small distortions in the three-dimensional anionic [Co(HCOO)3]- framework, but also the reorganization of the [CH3NH3]+ counter-ions in the cavities of the structure, which gives rise to an alteration of the hydrogen-bonded network, modifying the electrical properties of compound 1.

The characterization of the crystal structure, phase transitions, magnetic structure and dielectric properties has been carried out on [CH3 NH3 ][Co(COOH)3 ] (1) perovskite-like metal-organic compound through variable-temperature single-crystal and powder neutron and X-ray diffraction and relative permittivity measurements. The paraelectric to antiferroelectric-like phase transition observed at around 90 K is triggered by a structural phase transition; the structural studies show a change from Pnma space group at RT (1A) to P21 /n space group at low temperature (1B). This phase transition involves the occurrence of small distortions in the framework and counterions. Neutron diffraction studies have shown a magnetic order showing spontaneous magnetization below 15 K, due to the occurrence of a non-collinear antiferromagnetic structure with a weak ferromagnetic component, mainly due to the single-ion anisotropy of the CoII ions.

A study of the magnetic structure of the [NH2(CH3)2]n[FeIIIMII(HCOO)6]n niccolite-like compounds, with MII = CoII (2) and MnII (3) ions, has been carried out using neutron diffraction and compared with the previously reported FeII-containing compound (1). The inclusion of two different metallic atoms into the niccolite-like structure framework leads to the formation of isostructural compounds with very different magnetic behaviors due to the compensation or not of the different spins involved in each lattice. Below TN, the magnetic order in these compounds varies from ferrimagnetic behavior for 1 and 2 to an antiferromagnetic behavior with a weak spin canting for 3. Structure refinements of 2 and 3 at low temperature (45 K) have been carried out combining synchrotron X-ray and high-resolution neutron diffraction in a multipattern approach. The magnetic structures have been determined from the difference patterns between the neutron data in the paramagnetic and the magnetically ordered regions. These difference patterns have been analyzed using a simulated annealing protocol and symmetry analysis techniques. The obtained magnetic structures have been further rationalized by means of ab initio DFT calculations. The direction of the magnetic moment of each compound has been determined. The easy axis of the MII for compound 1 (FeII) is along the c axis; for compound 2 (CoII), the moments are mainly within the ab plane; finally, for compound 3 (MnII), the calculations show that the moments have components both in the ab plane and along the c axis.
