Abstract

The communication reports the synthesis, characterization, and magnetic behavior of a novel μ4-carbonato supported and imidazole capped ligated nickel cage [Ni8(μ-H2bpmp)44-CO3)4(ImH)8](NO3)4·2H2O (1) through self-assembly of ligand bound ferromagnetic Ni2 building blocks. Structural analysis indicates newer geometrical features for the coordination cage formation and dominant interdimer antiferromagnetic coupling resulting in a diamagnetic ground state.
