Recent Development in Clusters of Rare Earths and Actinides: Chemistry and Materials
We survey in this chapter the lanthanide hydroxide cluster complexes since the publication of the comprehensive review on the same subject (Handbook of physics and chemistry of rare earths
Rhodamine Salicylaldehyde Hydrazone Dy(III) Complexes: Fluorescence and Magnetism.
TLDR
Three new dysprosium(III) complexes were synthesized and characterized and ab initio calculations illustrate that the disposition of predominant Dy-Ophenoxy bonds affects the magnetic anisotropy of the Dy( III) ions and relaxation processes of complexes 2 and 3.
Mononuclear Lanthanide Complexes: Energy-Barrier Enhancement by Ligand Substitution in Field-Induced DyIII SIMs.
TLDR
The sequential reaction of 2-((6-(hydroxymethyl)pyridin-2-yl)-methyleneamino)phenol (LH2), LnCl3·6H2O, and 1,1,1-trifluoroacetylacetone (Htfa) in the presence of Et3N afforded another series of mononuclear complexes, which exhibited a ligand-sensitized lanthanide-characteristic emission.
Influence of the Ligand Field on the Slow Relaxation of Magnetization of Unsymmetrical Monomeric Lanthanide Complexes: Synthesis and Theoretical Studies.
TLDR
The computed susceptibility and magnetization are in good agreement with the experimental magnetic data [χMT(T) and M(H] and this offers confidence on the reliability of the extracted parameters; a tentative mechanism of magnetization relaxation observed in these complexes is also discussed in detail.
Transitions of two magnetic interaction states in dinuclear Dy(iii) complexes via subtle structural variations.
Herein we explored the transitions of two magnetic interaction states (antiferromagnetic or ferromagnetic) upon structural variations in two dinuclear Dy(iii) complexes.
Robust Magnetic Properties of a Sublimable Single-Molecule Magnet.
TLDR
This work presents a rare example of an SMM system that can be thermally sublimated on gold surfaces while maintaining its intact chemical structure and magnetic properties.
Macroscopic Hexagonal Tubes of 3 d-4 f Metallocycles.
TLDR
All three giant hexagonal 3d-4f metallocycles show typical single-molecule magnet behavior, benefiting from the ferromagnetic couplings between the 3d and 4f ions.
Probing the Effect of Axial Ligands on Easy-Plane Anisotropy of Pentagonal-Bipyramidal Cobalt(II) Single-Ion Magnets.
TLDR
This work represents a delicate modification of the magnetic anisotropy by tuning the chemical environment of the metal centers by systematically modifying the axial ligands from C to N to O to S atoms.
Slow Magnetic Relaxation in Chiral Helicene-Based Coordination Complex of Dysprosium
The complex [Dy(L)(tta)3] with L the chiral 3-(2-pyridyl)-4-aza[6]-helicene ligand (tta− = 2-thenoyltrifluoroaacetonate) has been synthesized in its racemic form and structurally and magnetically
