Three tetracoordinate Co(II) complexes [Co(biq)X2] (X = Cl, Br, I) with easy-plane magnetic anisotropy as field-induced single-molecule magnets.

Abstract

Three mononuclear complexes [Co(biq)X2] (biq = 2,2'-biquinoline; X = Cl, Br, I) were prepared by a solvothermal method and characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. In all three complexes the Co(ii) atom is tetrahedrally coordinated by one biq ligand bonded in a chelate manner and two halogenido ligands. Hydrogen bonding interactions (C-HX) along… (More)
