Unprecedented hexagonal bipyramidal single-ion magnets based on metallacrowns

Abstract

Two Ln(III) (Ln = Ce or Nd) complexes based on [15-MC-6] (MC = metallacrown) and phosphine oxide are reported for the first time with the Ln(III) ion featuring nearly perfect hexagonal bipyramidal LnO8 geometry, with pseudo-D6h symmetry. Magnetic measurements reveal that both behave as single-ion magnets (SIMs), where the slow relaxation is dominated by the Raman mechanism.
