Heterometallic hexanuclear Ni4M2 (M = Dy, Y) complexes: structure and single-molecule magnet for the Dy(III) derivative

Author affiliations

Abstract

To achieve a heterometallic single-molecule magnet with novel topologies, two isostructural hexanuclear clusters [Ni4Ln23-OH)2L4(OAc)8]·H2O [Ln = Dy, 1; Y, 2] were prepared from the reactions of 1,3-diamine-2-propanol (HL) with MCl3·6H2O (M = Dy, Y) and Ni(OAc)2·4H2O in acetonitrile, in which the studies for 2 with the diamagnetic metal ion of Y(III) are just for further understanding of the magnetic properties of 1. Single-crystal X-ray diffraction measurements indicate that both heterometallic hexanuclear complexes possess an S-shaped double-pocket skeleton with the two M(III) ions separated by a chair-like Ni4O4 moiety. The temperature- and frequency-dependent alternating-current (ac) susceptibility measurements under zero dc fields revealed a single-molecule magnet for 1. Its magnetic properties can be further understood based on the magnetic analysis of 2.
