A redox-active luminescent ytterbium based single molecule magnet.

Abstract

A redox active dinuclear complex [Yb(tta)(2)(L(1))(L(2))](2)·1.4(CH(2)Cl(2)) displays single molecule magnet behaviour with M(J) = ±7/2 ground state. The anisotropic barrier Δ is evaluated by the three dc data fit, ac analysis and emission spectrum demonstrating the correlation between magnetic and optical properties.
