Reactions in water between mixtures of rare earth ions (Ln =Y, La-Tm, except Pm) and the sodium salt of terephthalic acid lead to an infinite family of isostructural heteropolynuclear coordination polymers. The monophasic character of the synthesized powders as well as the isostructurality of the heteropolynuclear compounds with the previously described(More)
Reaction in water between rare earth ions (Ln = Y, La-Tm, except Pm) and the sodium salt of terephthalic acid leads to a family of lanthanide-based coordination polymers of general formula [Ln2(C8H4O4)3(H2O)4] n with Ln = La-Tm or Y. The isostructurality of the compounds with the previously reported Tb-containing polymer is ascertained on the basis of their(More)
The reaction of [Ln(hfac)(3)]·2H(2)O and pyridine-N-oxide (PyNO) leads to isostructural dimers of the formula [Ln(hfac)(3)(PyNO)](2) (Ln=Eu, Gd, Tb, Dy). The Dy derivative shows a remarkable single-molecule magnet behavior with complex hysteresis at 1.4 K. The dynamics of the magnetization features are two relaxation regimes: a thermally activated one at(More)
Lanthanide ions have unique physical properties and are essential for numerous technological devices. Indeed, much research has been undertaken in order to understand and optimize their luminescent behavior. From a chemical and more specific point of view, lanthanides can be used to build coordination polymers (CPs). CPs are materials in which metal ions(More)
The hydrothermal reaction of 5-aminoisophthalic acid and praseodymium oxide in different acids results in two new praseodymium coordination polymers, {Pr(2)(aip)(3)(H(2)O)(2) x 3 H(2)O}(n) (1) and {Pr(2)(Haip)(2)(aip)(NO(3))(2) x 8 H(2)O}(n) (2) (aip = 5-aminoisophthalate). Complexes 1 and 2 are two distinct three-dimensional metal-organic frameworks(More)
The reaction of the Er3+ ion with polycarboxylate ligands in gel media leads to coordination polymers exhibiting various structural types and dimensionalities. Five Er3+/1,4-benzenedicarboxylate-based coordination polymers have been obtained in such conditions. Four out of the five are new. Their crystal structures are reported and compared herein. Compound(More)
Reactions in water between the sodium salt of 4-carboxyphenylboronic acid (Hcpb) and lanthanide ions (Pr-Nd, Sm-Lu, and Y) led to a family of lanthanide-based coordination polymers with general chemical formula {[Ln(cpbOH)(H2O)2](cpb)}∞. Structural characterizations were ensured by single-crystal X-ray diffraction and solid-state NMR spectroscopy ((11)B,(More)
Two Dy(III) ions can be water bridged to form a textbook example of ferromagnetic short-bridged Dy-dimers where strong Ising anisotropy can be evidenced by single-crystal rotating magnetometry. The dimers present both single ion and single molecule magnet behaviour. Magnetic dilution evidences the influence of the ferromagnetic coupling on magnetic(More)
The synthesis of hexanuclear lanthanide hydroxo complexes by controlled hydrolysis led to polymorphic compounds. The hexanuclear entities crystallize in four different ways that depend on the extent of their hydration. The four structures can be described as hexanuclear lanthanide entities with formula [Ln(6)(mu(6)-O)(mu(3)-OH)(8)(NO(3))(6)(H(2)O)(12)](2+).(More)
Herein, we provide some structural evidence of the complexation color-change of murexide solutions in presence of lanthanide, which has been used for decades in complexometric studies. For Ln = Sm to Lu and Y, the compounds crystallize as monomeric [Ln(Murex)3]⋅11 H2O with an N3O6 tricapped square-antiprism environment, which are stable up to 250 °C.(More)
