Abstract

The synthesis, characterization by X-ray analysis and magnetic properties of a one dimensional coordination polymer {[Mn7(OH)2(dhap)2(N3)3(MeCN)4(ClO4)2]·2(MeCN)·2(ClO4)} (1) are reported. The ligand dhapH4 in the complex is 2,6-bis[N,N-di(hydroxyethyl)aminomethyl]pyridine. This compound crystallizes in the monoclinic space group C2/c. Each [Mn7(OH)2(dhap)2(N3)3(MeCN)4(ClO4)2] unit (abbreviated by Mn7) is linked end-to-end by azido ligands to its neighboring units to form a one dimensional polymer. Magnetic susceptibility measurements indicate that the polymer is composed of S = 8 units with inter-Mn7-unit antiferromagnetic coupling. The Jahn–Teller axes of the Mn7 units are arranged in a zigzag manner along the polymer chain which induces spin canting at low temperatures. The slow magnetization relaxation at low temperatures was evidenced by observing out-of-phase signals in ac magnetic susceptibility measurements that give Ueff = 47.5 K and Δ0 = 2.7 × 10−13 s. This phenomenon also indicates that this one dimensional coordination polymer functions as a single-chain magnet (SCM).
