Abstract

The preparation, spectroscopic characterization, structural study and magnetic investigation of three new complexes of formula [Co(bpcam)2]ClO4·dmso·H2O (1), [Co(bpcam)2]2[Co(NCS)4]·dmso·H2O (2) and [Ni(bpcam)2]·H2O (3) [Hbpcam = bis(2-pyrimidylcarbonyl)amide] are reported. Each bpcam group in 1–3 acts as a tridentate ligand being coordinated to the cobalt(III) (1 and 2)/nickel(II) (3) ions through three nitrogen atoms in a mer-arrangement. Six-coordinate cobalt(III) and nickel(II) occur in 1 and 3 respectively, whereas six-coordinate cobalt(III) and four-coordinate cobalt(II) coexist in 2. Cyclic voltammetry of 1 in acetonitrile shows the occurrence of one quasi reversible CoIII ↔ CoII process. Direct current (dc) variable-temperature magnetic susceptibility measurements on polycrystalline samples of 2 and 3 were carried out in the temperature range 1.9–295 K. The magnetic behaviour of 2 obeys to the zero-field splitting effects (DCo) of the 4A2 ground term of the pseudotetrahedral [Co(NCS)4]2− complex anion. A Curie law for a magnetically isolated nickel(II) ion in the high temperatures domain occurs for 3, the small decrease of χMT below 10 K being due zero-field splitting effects. The analysis of the magnetic susceptibility data of 2 and 3 through the spin Hamiltonian H = DM[Sz2S(S + 1)/3] + gMβHS [M = Co(2) and Ni(3)] led to the following set of values: gM = 2.37 (2) and 2.12 (3) and |DM| = 34.7 (2) and 1.72 cm−1 (3).
