Magnetic exchange interactions in symmetric lanthanide dimetallics

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report the synthesis and characterization of two symmetric homo-dimetallic lanthanide complexes based on methyl-substituted 8-hydroxyquinoline (HMeQ). The aryloxo-bridged core gives rise to weak magnetic coupling between pairs of ErIII and YbIII ions, as revealed by magnetic and EPR spectroscopy studies. EPR measurements of magnetically dilute species, coupled with CASSCF-SO calculations, allows modelling of the EPR spectra of the exchange coupled species and the magnetic data simultaneously. This work adds to the database of exchange coupled {Ln}2 molecules which have been thoroughly characterised by EPR spectroscopy and modelled using an Seff = 1/2 approach to describe the interaction of ground Kramers states, and highlights the differences between centro-symmetric and asymmetric dimetallics.
