Abstract

In the complex synthesis process, the design of new type structures of lanthanide clusters with high nuclearity provides an opportunity to understand the nature of magnetic dynamics. Here, the homometallic dodecanuclear complexes with the formula [Ln12(H2L1)43-O)43-OH)4(CH3COO)15]·(CH3COO)·(CH3OH)6 (Ln = Dy (1) and Gd (2)) were synthesized using 2,6-bis(2-((E)-2-hydroxybenzylidene)hydrazine-1-carbonyl)pyridine 1-oxide (H4L1) ligand and Ln(CH3COO)3·6H2O in CH3OH. The structural analysis showed that those complexes had novel cores in Ln-clusters. In the main core of [Ln123-OH)43-O)42-O)14], the center was a cubic [Ln43-O)4]4− structure. In the [Ln43-O)4]4− structure, each Ln(III) ion and the other two Ln(III) ions formed a triangular [Ln33-O)(μ2-O)3] structure under the connection of oxygen bridges. Magnetic property measurements revealed that complex 1 showed weak single-molecule magnetic behavior, while complex 2 showed large magnetocaloric effects (MCEs).
