Isostructural M(ii) complexes (M = Mn, Fe, Co) with field-induced slow magnetic relaxation for Mn and Co complexes

Abstract

We herein report the synthetic, structural, theoretical, and magnetic studies on three isostructural complexes, [M(L)2(CH3OH)2] (M = Mn (Mn), Fe (Fe), and Co (Co); HL = 2,6-bis(pyrazole-1-yl)pyridine-4-carboxylic acid). From single crystal X-ray crystallography, it is found that the complexes crystallized in the same space group (C2/c) and had seven-coordinate pentagonal bipyramidal structures. From direct current (dc) and alternating current (ac) magnetic susceptibility measurements, Mn and Co were found to undergo field-induced slow magnetic relaxation with two relaxation pathways. To elucidate the origin of the slow magnetic relaxation phenomena of Mn, electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) measurements and theoretical calculations were performed. The EPR measurements were performed on polycrystalline powder samples, and the following parameters were obtained by simulating the EPR data: giso = 2.00 and small zero field splitting parameter D = −0.13 cm−1. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first example of a seven-coordinate mononuclear Mn(II) complex undergoing slow magnetic relaxation.
