Single-chain magnetic behavior in a hetero-tri-spin complex mediated by supramolecular interactions with TCNQF radicals. Academic Article uri icon


  • The self-assembly of organic TCNQF radicals (2-fluoro-7,7,8,8-tetracyano-p-quinodimethane) and the anisotropic [Tb(valpn)Cu](3+) dinuclear cations produced a single-chain magnet (SCM) involving stacking interactions of TCNQF radicals (H2valpn is the Schiff base from the condensation of o-vanillin with 1,3-diaminopropane). Static and dynamic magnetic characterizations reveal that the effective energy barrier for the reversal of the magnetization in this hetero-tri-spin SCM is significantly larger than the barrier of the isolated single-molecule magnet based on the {TbCu} dinuclear core.
