The syntheses, structures, and magnetic properties of four new complex salts, (PPN){[Mn(III)(salphen)(MeOH)]2[M(III)(CN)6]}·7MeOH (Mn2M·7MeOH) (M = Fe, Ru, Os and Co; PPN(+) = bis(triphenylphosphoranylidene)ammonium cation; H2salphen = N,N'-bis(salicylidene)-1,2-diaminobenzene), and a mixed metal Co/Os analogue(More)
A new mononuclear dysprosium(III)-cucurbit[6]uril complex has been synthesized and characterized structurally and magnetically. It exhibits single-ion magnet (SIM) behavior with two slow magnetic relaxation processes, which are very sensitive to the solvation degree of the sample. Depending on the amount and type of the solvent in the structure, it is(More)
A series of heterobimetallic, cyano-bridged 3D inorganic-organic hybrid networks with MnII-L-MnII and MnII-NC-NbIV linkages are reported. Reaction of [Mn(H2O)6]2+ with [Nb(CN)8]4- in the presence of organic linker L (pyrazine (pyz), pyrazine-N,N'-dioxide (pzdo), and 2,2'-bipyrimidine (bpym)) in H2O affords {MnII2(pz)2(H2O)4[NbIV(CN)8]}.pz.3H2O (1),(More)
Photomagnetic compounds are usually achieved by assembling preorganized individual molecules into rationally designed molecular architectures via the bottom-up approach. Here we show that a magnetic response to light can also be enforced in a nonphotomagnetic compound by applying mechanical stress. The nonphotomagnetic cyano-bridged Fe(II)-Nb(IV)(More)
Lanthanide-based extended coordination frameworks showing photocontrolled single-molecule magnet (SMM) behavior were prepared by combining highly anisotropic Dy(III) and Ho(III) ions with the carboxylato-functionalized photochromic molecule 1,2-bis(5-carboxyl-2-methyl-3-thienyl)perfluorocyclopentene (H2 dae), which acts as a bridging ligand. As a result,(More)
The heptacyanotungstate(IV) anion was isolated in the salt (n-Bu4 N)3 [W(IV) (CN)7 ] (1) from the reduction of (n-Bu4 N)3 [W(V) (CN)8 ] with concomitant loss of one cyanide ligand. The anion in 1 adopts a slightly distorted pentagonal bipyramidal geometry with an average W-C distance of 2.169 Å. The spectroscopic and magnetic properties are described.
Given the recent advent of mononuclear single-molecule magnets (SMMs), a rational approach based on lanthanides with axially elongated f-electron charge cloud (prolate) has only recently received attention. We report herein a new SMM, [Li(THF)4[Er{N(SiMe3)2}3Cl]⋅2 THF, which exhibits slow relaxation of the magnetization under zero dc field with an effective(More)
A comprehensive study of magnetocaloric effect (MCE) and critical behaviour in the ferrimagnetic Mn2–pyridazine–[Nb(CN)8] molecular magnet under hydrostatic pressure is reported. The pressure-induced structural changes provoke the strengthening of magnetic interaction between Mn and Nb centres. Consequently, an increase of critical temperature Tc is(More)
The self-assembly of [Nb(IV)(CN)(8)](4-) with different 3d metal centers in an aqueous solution and an excess of pyrazole resulted in the formation of four 3D isostructural compounds {[M(II)(pyrazole)(4)](2)[Nb(IV)(CN)(8)].4H(2)O}(n), where M(II) = Mn, Fe, Co, and Ni for 1-4, respectively. All four assemblies crystallize in the same I4(1)/a space group and(More)
