A stable open-shell redox active ditopic ligand

Author affiliations


Herein we describe the synthesis, structure and electronic properties of an unusual redox-active ditopic ligand with a stable open-shell configuration. This stable phenoxyl radical features intense and very low energy electronic transitions in the near infrared (NIR) part of the spectrum and is structurally set up to strongly spin couple coordinated transition metal ions in [2 × 2] grid-type structures.
