Systematic Study of Open‐Shell Trigonal Pyramidal Transition‐Metal Complexes with a Rigid‐Ligand Scaffold Academic Article uri icon


  • A family of distorted trigonal pyramidal transition-metal complexes [MII (N3 N)Li(THF)] (M=Mn, Fe, Co, Ni) have been studied as candidates for mononuclear single-molecule magnets. Magnetic anisotropy of the family depends on the electronic configuration of the central ion, with the Co analogue exhibiting pronounced SMM behavior.
