RESUMO

The unique electronic configurations of lanthanide(III) ions generate abundant electronic energy levels, resulting in the fantastic magnetic and optical multifunctional properties of lanthanide complexes. Here, 2-hydroxy-3-methoxybenzoic acid (H2MBA) was used to construct four Dy(III) and Tb(III) complexes containing two isostructural dinuclear complexes of [Ln2(HMBA)2(MBA)2(DMF)2(H2O)2]·6H2O [Ln = Dy (1), Tb (2); DMF = N,N-dimethylformamide] and two other isostructural beltlike one-dimensional-chain complexes of [NH4][Ln(HMBA)4] [Ln = Dy (3), Tb (4)]. Fluorescence measurements reveal that H2MBA can sensitize Dy(III) and Tb(III) characteristic luminescence. Furthermore, complex 3 can emit white light under UV-light irradiation originating from a dichromatic mixture of a blue emission of H2MBA and a dominating yellow emission of Dy3+ ions. Magnetic susceptibility measurements show that two Dy(III) complexes are single-molecule magnets with anisotropy barriers of 90(2) and 31(5) cm-1 for 1 and 3, respectively. The magnet-luminescence-structure correlations as well as relaxation pathways are investigated by ab initio calculations and fluorescent spectrometry.

RESUMO

Long decoherence time is a key consideration for molecular magnets in the application of the quantum computation. Although previous studies have shown that the local symmetry of spin carriers plays a crucial part in the spin-lattice relaxation process, its role in the spin decoherence is still unclear. Herein, two nine-coordinated capped square antiprism neodymium moieties [Nd(CO3)4H2O]5- with slightly different local symmetries, C1 versus C4 (1 and 2), are reported, which feature in the easy-plane magnetic anisotropy as shown by the high-frequency electron paramagnetic resonance (HF-EPR) studies. Detailed analysis of the relaxation time suggests that the phonon bottleneck effect is essential to the magnetic relaxation in the crystalline samples of 1 and 2. The 240 GHz Pulsed EPR studies show that the higher symmetry results in longer decoherence times, which is supported by the first principle calculations.

RESUMO

Tuning magnetic anisotropy of metal ions remains highly interesting in the design of improved single-molecule magnets (SMMs). We herein reported the synthetic, structural, magnetic, and computational studies of four mononuclear CoII complexes, namely [Co(hfac)2(MeCN)2] (1), [Co(hfac)2(Spy)2] (2), [Co(hfac)2(MBIm)2] (3), and [Co(hfac)2(DMF)2] (4) (MeCN = acetonitrile, hfac = hexafluoroacetylacetone, Spy = 4-styrylpyridine, MbIm = 5,6-dimethylbenzimidazole, DMF = N,N-Dimethylformamide), with distorted octahedral geometry constructed from hexafluoroacetylacetone (hfac) and various axial ligands. By a building block approach, complexes 2-4 were synthesized by recrystallization of the staring material of 1 from various ligands containing solution. Magnetic and theoretical studies reveal that 1-4 possesses large positive D values and relative small E parameters, indicating easy-plane magnetic anisotropy with significant rhombic anisotropy in 1-4. Dynamic alternative current (ac) magnetic susceptibility measurements indicate that these complexes both exhibit slow magnetic relaxation under external fields, suggesting field-induced single-ion magnets (SIMs) of 1-4. These results provide a promising platform to achieve fine tuning of magnetic anisotropy through varying the axial ligands based on the Co(II) bis(hexafluoroacetylacetonate) complexes.

RESUMO

The detection and reusage of transition-metal ions play a crucial role in human health and environmental protection. Recently, various analytical methods and substances have been successfully applied to probe or sense silver ions; however, rare representative examples have been presented regarding the simultaneous detection of silver and silver recycling with the elemental silver powder form. Herein, an unparalleled sensing mechanism for silver ions and recycling silver in its elemental form is exemplified by a fluorescent trinuclear zinc coordination cluster possessing the dual function of colorimetric sensing of silver and responding cupric ions. A Schiff-base-based trinuclear zinc coordination cluster, 1, with formula Zn3(L1)2(CH3COO)2(H2O)2, has been successfully synthesized by the initial exploration of multidentate ligand H2L1-((E)-2,4-di-tert-butyl-6-((2-hydroxy-3-methoxybenzy-lidene)amino)phenol) with various metal ions under self-assembly reactions. Complex 1 is highly fluorescent in solution and as a solid, in addition to acting as a fluorescence sensor toward AgI in ethanol media. Compound 1 displays distinctive sensing of AgI through the fluorescence quenching effect at 576 nm and signal augment at 446 nm over 11 kinds of cations in the absence of interference. The proposed sensing mechanism is attributed to the ligands in 1 which interact with AgI; the ligands undergo oxidation cyclization reaction, leading to the formation of 2 with the formula Zn3(L2)4(CH3COO)2·2CH3CH2OH·H2O, and AgI reduction to elemental Ag powder. Compound 1 presents specific selectivity and sensitivity for AgI in ethanolic solution with a detection limit of 0.1722 µM. The orange color of 1 changes to colorless during the mixing of a small amount of AgI, revealing its potential practical application in naked-eye detection of AgI. Furthermore, 2 exhibits obvious fluorescence emission at 448 nm (λex = 380 nm) and selectively responds to CuII over 11 kinds of metal ions with the fluorescence "turn-off" owing to the formation of 3 in ethanolic solution; it also has a detection limit of 0.0226 µM.

RESUMO

The effect of screening the CoII moment of monomeric [CoIIL2(H2O)] (L = 8-hydroxyquinaldine), having a trigonal bipyramid coordination, by diamagnetic Zn in CoxZn1-x solid solutions on its magnetic relaxation was explored using ac-susceptibility, high-field electron-spin-resonance measurements and CASPT2 calculations. The retention of the crystal structure for all the solid solutions was demonstrated using single crystal diffraction. The dc-magnetization and theoretical fittings of the susceptibility for Co1 and Co0.1Zn0.9 gave a large zero-field-splitting (ZFS) D of 50 ± 6 cm-1, and very weak dipole interaction between the nearest neighbors, while EPR and calculations confirmed the positive sign of the axial component (D). Consistent parameters were obtained from experiments and theory. Importantly, only field-induced relaxation was observed for the samples with less than 50% Co and a gradual change in the barrier energy to moment reversal and relaxation times was observed between 11% and 20% Co, while both were enhanced for higher dilutions. The results establish a clear barrier for extending the longevity of the magnetism for this type of single-ion species by lowering the intramolecular interactions. The results suggest that the magnetic interaction persists up to the second sphere, that is, for a dilution of 1 in 9 (11% Co). Importantly, this method is applicable to all single-ion magnet systems, that is, the optimum dilution concentration to restrain the dipole field can be given only by the single crystal structure.

RESUMO

Two mononuclear, seven-coordinate Co(ii) and Fe(ii) complexes [CoII(BPA-TPA)](BF4)2 (1-Co) and [FeII(BPA-TPA)](ClO4)2 (2-Fe) with a capped trigonal prismatic coordination geometry have been synthesized from the pentapyridyldiamine (BPA-TPA) ligand. 1-Co exhibits easy plane anisotropy in which slow magnetic relaxation is observed under a 1.0 kOe dc field. It is the first example of a single-ion magnet (SIM) of a 3d transition metal ion with a capped trigonal prismatic configuration. 2-Fe is not a SIM at 1.8 K.

RESUMO

Two rhodamine 6G-based mononuclear dysprosium complexes, [Dy(LR)(LA)2](ClO4)3·Et2O·1.5MeOH·0.5H2O (1) and [Dy(LR)(H2O)4(MeCN)](ClO4)3·2H2O·MeCN (2) (LR = salicylaldehyde rhodamine 6G hydrazone, LA = 2-pyridylcarboxaldehyde benzoyl hydrazone), are synthesized, aiming at improving the magnetic behavior by modulating their coordination environment. Both complexes own one exclusive short Dy-Ophenoxy coordination bond as the predominant bond and exhibit single-molecule magnet behavior under zero dc field with the energy barrier (Ueff/kB) of 90 K (1) and 320 K (2) and apparent hysteresis at 1.9 K. The ab initio calculations indicate that the short Dy-Ophenoxy bond determines the direction of magnetic anisotropic axis for 1 and 2. The quantum tunneling of magnetization (QTM) between the ground Kramers doublets (KDs) in 1 cannot be neglected, leading to an experimental Ueff/kB much lower than the calculated energy of the first excited state (318.2 K). For 2, the stronger magnetic anisotropy and negligible QTM between the ground KDs guarantees that the energy barrier is close to the calculated energy of first KDs (320.8 K). On the other hand, the presence of ring-opened xanthene moiety makes complexes 1 and 2 in the solid state emit red light with emission bands of 645 and 658 nm, respectively.

RESUMO

For a long time, the cobalt(II) complex ([Co(napy)4 ](ClO4 )2 ) (napy=1, 8-naphthyridine) has been considered as an eight-coordinate complex without any structural proof. After careful considerations, two complexes [Co(napy)2 Cl2 ] (1) and [Co(napy)4 ](ClO4 )2 (2) based on the bidentate ligand napy were synthesized and structurally characterized. X-ray single-crystal structural determination showed that the cobalt(II) center in [Co(napy)2 Cl2 ] (1) is four-coordinate with a tetrahedral geometry (Td ), while [Co(napy)4 ](ClO4 )2 (2) is seven-coordinate rather than eight-coordinate with a capped trigonal prism geometry (C2v ). Direct-current (dc) magnetic data revealed that complexes 1 and 2 possess positive zero-field splitting (ZFS) parameters of 11.08 and 25.30 cm-1 , respectively, with easy-plane magnetic anisotropy. Alternating current(ac) susceptibility measurements revealed that both complexes showed slow magnetic relaxation behaviour. Theoretical calculations demonstrated that the presence of easy-plane magnetic anisotropy (D>0) for complexes 1 and 2 is in agreement with the experimental data. Furthermore, these results pave the way to obtain four-coordinate and seven-coordinate cobalt(II) single-ion magnets (SIMs) by using a bidentate ligand.

RESUMO

Complexation of dysprosium(iii) ions with a multidentate hydrazone ligand, N-[(E)-pyridin-2-ylmethylideneamino]pyridine-2-carboxamide (L), in the presence of different ß-diketonate coligands, leads to the formation of two novel DyIII dimers, with formulas Dy2(BTFA)4(L)2 (1) and Dy2(TTA)4(L)2 (2) (BTFA = 3-benzoyl-1,1,1-trifluoroacetone and TTA = 4,4,4-trifluoro-1-(2-thienyl)-1,3-butanedionate). They exhibit slightly different coordination geometries around DyIII centers and discrepant binuclear motifs - as a result of altering the ß-diketonate coligands - which has an impact on the magnetic interactions between metal centers, the local tensor of anisotropy on each DyIII site and their relative orientations, therefore contributing to distinct magnetization dynamics. Compared to 2, complex 1 exhibits a more significant slow magnetic relaxation of SMM behavior in the absence of a dc field. The QTM effect is effectively repressed under a static field, resulting in the energy barriers of 57 K for 1 and 38 K for 2. Ab initio calculations clarify that, strong single-ion magnetic anisotropies exist in both complexes, whereas intermetallic ferromagnetic interaction and antiferromagnetic interaction are observed in 1 and 2, respectively, therefore resulting in dissimilar magnetization dynamics.

RESUMO

An unprecedented cyclic TbIII-radical cluster, [Tb3(hfac)6(4-Me-3-NITtrz)2(OH)3] (1), has been self-assembled from Tb(hfac)3·2H2O and 4-Me-3-NITtrz in the presence of Cu(hfac)2·2H2O. Alternating-current magnetic studies show that the Tb3 cluster displays a dual slow relaxation of magnetization behavior under a zero direct-current (dc) field and a single relaxation process under an induced dc field with an effective energy barrier of 14 K, representing the first triangle 2p-4f cluster with a slow magnetic relaxation property.

RESUMO

The magnetic properties of single-molecule magnets can be controlled by external conditions such as light, pressure, and temperature. Among these conditions, photochemical control is the best approach due to the accessibility and rapid conduction of light. In this work, an Er(III)-based complex with photoactive ligand bpe, [Er(nat)3·MeOH·bpe] (1, bpe = 1,2-bis(2-pyridyl)ethylene, nat = 4,4,4-trifluoro-1-(2-naphthyl)-1,3-butanedione), was synthesized. The auxiliary ligand nat and cyclized ligand bpe stacked reasonably in the crystal structure. Two molecules of 1 experienced the [2, 2]-cycloaddition reaction under the UV irradiation in the solid state and [{Er(nat)3MeOH}2(tpcb)] (2, tpcb = tetrakis(4-pyridyl)cyclobutane) was produced. The slight change in the structure around Er(III) ions leads to the different magnetic properties, which illustrates the photochemical control of the magnetic properties of single-molecule magnets.

RESUMO

Two mononuclear tetrahedral Co(II) complexes (HNEt3)2[Co(L1)2]·H2O (1) and (Bu4N)2[Co(L2)2]·H2O (2) (H2L1 = N,N'-bis(p-toluenesulfony1)oxamide, H2L2 = N,N'-diphenyloxamide) have been synthesized, and their structures have been characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. Both complexes adopt distorted tetrahedral coordination geometries surrounding the Co(II) center, which is ligated by two doubly deprotonated oxamide ligands oriented perpendicularly to each other. Their axial magnetic anisotropies were revealed by the direct current (dc) magnetic measurements, high-field and high-frequency electron paramagnetic resonance, and theoretical calculations. Both complexes display slow magnetic relaxation in the absence of an applied dc field. Upon the application of the 0.15 T dc field, the quantum tunneling of magnetization is efficiently suppressed. In addition, both complexes display hysteresis loops with different field sweep rates at 1.8 K, which is rarely observed for Co(II) single-ion magnets (SIMs).

RESUMO

The utilization of two isomorphic ligands with different substituents leads to two centrosymmetric DyIII dimers, namely, [Dy2(bfbpen)2(H2O)2]·2I- (1) and [Dy2(bcbpen)2(H2O)2]·2I-·0.5H2O (2) (H2bfbpen = N,N'-bis-(2-hydroxy-5-fluoro-benzyl)-N,N'-bis-(pyridin-2-ylmethyl)ethylenediamine and H2bcbpen = N,N'-bis-(2-hydroxy-5-chloro-benzyl)-N,N'-bis-(pyridin-2-ylmethyl)ethylenediamine). Although Dy ions in both compounds uniformly exhibit a square-antiprism geometry, the critical difference found in the terminal substituents of the two ligands fine-tunes the local crystal field around Dy centers and the dinuclear molecular structures of 1 and 2. Magnetic investigations unveil that both 1 and 2 display dynamic magnetic relaxation of single-molecule magnet (SMM) behaviour with different energy barriers of 20.9 K for 1 and 72.7 K for 2 under a zero direct-current (dc) field, as well as 26.9 K for 1 under a 1200 Oe dc field. Compared to 1, the stronger uniaxial anisotropy and magnetic exchange in 2 render it a better SMM as evidenced by the higher energy barrier. Ab initio calculations are also performed on both Dy2 compounds to rationalize the observed discrepancy in their magnetic behaviours. The contribution illustrates that the SMM behaviour could be effectively enhanced by means of deliberate local structural manipulation.

RESUMO

Four chair-like hexanuclear Fe-Ln complexes containing mixed organic ligands, namely, [Fe4Ln2{(py)2CO2}4(pdm)2(NO3)2(H2O)2Cl4]·xCH3CN·yH2O (Ln = GdIII (1, x = 1, y = 0), DyIII (2, x = 1, y = 1), HoIII (3, x = 0, y = 2), and ErIII (4, x = 1, y = 3); (py)2CO2H2 = the gem-diol form of di-2-pyridyl ketone and pdmH2 = 2,6-pyridinedimethanol) have been obtained by employing di-2-pyridyl ketone and 2,6-pyridinedimethanol reacting with FeCl3 and Ln(NO3)3 in MeCN. The structures of 1-4 are similar to each other except for the number of lattice solvent molecules. Four FeIII and two LnIII in these complexes comprise a chair-like core with the "body" constructed by four FeIII ions and the "end" constructed by two LnIII ions. Among the four compounds, 2 shows field-induced single molecule magnet behavior as revealed by ac magnetic susceptibility studies, with the effective energy barrier and the pre-exponential factor of 22.07 K and 8.44 × 10-7 s, respectively. Ab initio calculations indicated that, among 2_Dy, 3_Ho and 4_Er fragments, the energy gap between the lowest two spin-orbit states for 2_Dy is the largest, while the tunneling gap for 2 is the smallest. These might be the reasons for complex 2 exhibiting SMM behavior. Additionally, the orientations of the magnetic anisotropy of DyIII in 2 were obtained by electrostatic calculations and ab initio calculations, both indicating that the directions of the main magnetic axis of Dy1 ions are almost aligned along Dy1-O5 (O5 from the pdm2- ligand).

RESUMO

Three heterometallic dinuclear compounds, [MIIDyIII(L)(Pc)(ROH)]·ROH (R = CH3, M = Ni (1), Zn (2); R = C2H5, M = Zn (3)), were stepwise synthesized based on phthalocyanine (H2Pc) and one tripodal Schiff-base ligand 1,1,1-tris[(salicylideneamino)methyl]ethane (H3L). All of them have been studied structurally and magnetically. The six-coordinate MII ion and the seven-coordinate DyIII ion are bridged by two phenolic oxygen atoms to form an MII-LnIII heterodinuclear unit. Magnetic measurements indicate that the ferromagnetic NiII-DyIII interaction is operative in compound 1 and all three compounds exhibit the field-induced slow relaxation of magnetizations. In particular, compounds 2 and 3 have the improved magnetic performance. Ab initio calculations indicate that the weak NiII-DyIII interaction decreases the energy barrier, while the replacement of the paramagnetic NiII ion by the diamagnetic ZnII in compound 2 and 3 not only controls the magnetic interaction but also alters the local magnetic axes of DyIII ions to optimize the magnetic relaxation behavior.

RESUMO

Three mononuclear six-coordinate Co(ii)-pseudohalide complexes [Co(L)X2] with two N-donor pseudohalido coligands occupying the cis-positions (X = NCS- (1), NCSe- (2) or N(CN)2- (3)), and a five-coordinate complex [Co(L)(NCO)][B(C6H5)4] (4) [L = 1,4,7,10-tetramethyl-1,4,7,10-tetraazacyclododecane (12-TMC)] have been prepared and structurally characterized. Easy-plane magnetic anisotropy for 1-3 and easy-axis anisotropy for 4 were revealed via the analyses of the direct-current magnetic data, high-frequency and -field EPR (HFEPR) spectra and ab initio theoretical calculations. They display slow magnetic relaxations under an external applied dc field. Typically, two slow relaxation processes were found in 1 and 2 while only one relaxation process occurs in 3 and 4. The Raman-like mechanism is found to be dominant in the studied temperature range in 1. For 2-4, the Raman process is dominant in the low temperature region, while the Orbach mechanism dominates in the high temperature range.

RESUMO

Four tetranuclear 3d-4f complexes, namely [Fe2Ln2(L)2(teaH)2(Cl)2](NO3)2·4CH3CN (H2L = N1,N3-bis(3-methoxysalicylidene)diethylenetriamine, teaH3 = triethanolamine, Ln = Dy for 1 and Ln = Gd for 1') and [Co2Ln2(L)2(pdm)2(CH3COO)2(CH3OH)2](NO3)2·xCH3OH·yH2O (pdmH2 = 2,6-pyridinedimethanol, Ln = Dy, x = 5 and y = 2.5 for 2 and Ln = Gd, x = 6 and y = 1.5 for 2'), have been reported. Two FeIII and two DyIII in 1 formed a zigzag Fe1-Dy1-Dy1a-Fe1a arrangement with a Fe1-Dy1-Dy1a angle of 105.328(3)°. However, in contrast to 1, two CoIII and two DyIII ions in 2 formed a more linear Co1-Dy1-Dy1a-Co1a arrangement with a Co1-Dy1-Dy1a angle of 141.86(2)°. Additionally, two DyIII ions in 1 are eight-coordinated with a triangular dodecahedron geometry, while two DyIII ions in 2 adopt nine-coordination with a muffin geometry. Magnetic studies revealed slow magnetic relaxation behavior for 1, with an energy barrier Ea of 6.9 K. For 2, single molecule magnet behavior was presented under a zero dc field with an effective energy barrier Ueff of 64.0(9) K. Ab initio calculations for 1 and 2 indicate that compared to 2, complex 1 has a larger transversal magnetic moment of its ground Kramers doublets (KD) and a larger value of the tunnelling parameter (Δt) for the exchanged coupled ground state, which may result in poor single molecule magnet behavior for 1.

RESUMO

We showcase the coordination anion substitution effect on the relaxation dynamics of defect dicubane Zn2Dy2 tetranuclear clusters. On utilization of the coordination similarity of acetate and nitrate anions, we successfully isolated two defect dicubane Zn2Dy2 tetranuclear clusters with formulas [Zn2Dy2(L)4(NO3)2(CH3OH)2]·2CH3COCH3 (1) and [Zn2Dy2(L)4(CH3COO)2(CH3CH2OH)2]·4CH3COCH3 (2), where L denotes the fully deprotonated H2L ligand (E)-4-(tert-butyl)-2-((2-hydroxy-3-methoxybenzylidene)amino)phenol. Such a subtle change in the coordination anion around the DyIII site imposes a significant effect on the distinct relaxation dynamics in 1 and 2. Their magnetic properties were characterized through SQUID magnetometry and theoretical calculations to determine the effective energy barrier, energy levels, magnetic anisotropy and intracluster magnetic exchange coupling interactions. Both tetramers display frequency dependence of the out-of-phase ac magnetic susceptibility signal under zero applied dc field associated with single-molecule magnetic behaviour. The effective energy barriers of 1 and 2 are 108 and 40 cm-1, respectively. Theoretical calculations suggest that the different relaxation dynamics between them are mainly ascribed to the variation of the coordination anion around the DyIII site.
