Slow magnetic relaxation influenced by change of symmetry from ideal Ci to D3d in cobalt(ii)-based single-ion magnets

Author affiliations

Abstract

The coordination geometries of the Co(II) site in the two complexes [Co(imidazole)6][BPh4]2·0.3CH3CN (1) and [Co(imidazole)6][NO3]2 (2) were observed to display the ideal symmetries Ci and D3d, respectively. Both complexes were shown to be field-induced single-ion magnets. The effective energy barrier was found to decrease as the local symmetry changed from low-symmetry Ci to high-symmetry D3d.
