ABSTRACT
The size, morphology, and purity control of coordination compound powders is a key stage for their conversion into materials and devices. In particular, surface science techniques require highly pure bulk materials with a narrow crystallite-size distribution together with straightforward, scalable, and reproducible crystallization procedures. In this work we demonstrate how sonocrystallization, i.e. the application of ultrasound during the crystallization process, can afford very quickly powders made of crystallites with controlled size, morphology, and purity. We show that this process drastically diminishes the crystallite-size distribution (low polydispersity indexes, PDI) and crystallite aspect ratio. By comparing sonicated samples with samples obtained by various silent crystallization conditions, we unambiguously show that the improvement in the crystallite morphology and size distribution is not due to any thermal effect but to the sonication of the crystallizing media. The application of sonocrystallization on crystallization batches of single-chain magnets (SCMs) maintains the chemical integrity of the SCMs together with their original magnetic behavior. Moreover, luminescent measurements show that sonocrystallization induces an efficient micromixing that drastically enhances the purity of the SCM powders. We thus propose that sonocrystallization, which is already used on organic or MOF compounds, can be applied to (magnetic) coordination compounds to readily afford bulk powders for characterization or shaping techniques that require pure, morphology- and crystallite-size-controlled powder samples.
