Abstract

Single crystal diffraction studies reveal the formation of the following 10 new complexes of lighter Ln(III) ions with general formulas {[Ln(μ2-L1)3·(H2O)2]·H2O}n (Ln = Nd (1) and Eu (2)), [Nd(μ2-L2)2·(CH3COO)·(H2O)2]n (3), [Ln22-L2)5·(L2)·(H2O)4]n (Ln = Sm (4), Ce (5), and Pr (6)), [La22-L2)6·(H2O)3·(DMF)]n (7) (DMF = dimethylformamide), [Ln(μ2-L2)2·(L2)·(H2O)3]2 (Ln = Eu (8) and Gd (9)) and [Gd(L2)·(CH3COO)2·(H2O)2]2 (10), where L1 and L2 are anions of 3,5- and 2,4-dinitrobenzoic acid, respectively. Complexes 1–7 are 1D coordination polymers, while 8–10 are dinuclear complexes. The luminescence properties of Nd(III) and Eu(III) analogues displayed metal-centred emission with L1 exhibiting weak but more efficient sensitization than L2. A study of the magnetic properties of the compounds clearly demonstrated the field-induced single ion magnet behaviour of the Nd(III) compounds 1 and 3. Their behaviour has been compared to previously reported analogous Nd(III) complexes and the role of the lattice solvent and polymorphism on the magnetic behaviour has been evaluated.
