Molecular and electronic structures of donor-functionalized dysprosium pentadienyl complexes

Abstract

Two dysprosium complexes, [(C5H4Me)2Dy(L1)] (3) and [(L1)Dy(μ-Cl)3{Li(tmeda)}]2 (4), with amino-functionalized pentadienyl ligands L1 are described. Crystallographic studies of 3 and 4 show that the pendant amino group influences the pentadienyl conformation and the ligand hapticity. Electronic structure calculations reveal that L1 has a strong influence on the orientation of the main magnetic axis of the ground Kramers doublets in 3 and 4.
