Strong Ferromagnetic Exchange Coupling Mediated by a Bridging Tetrazine Radical in a Dinuclear Nickel Complex. Academic Article uri icon


  • The radical bridged compound [(Ni(TPMA))2--bmtz-](BF4)33CH3CN (bmtz = 3,6-bis(2'-pyrimidyl)-1,2,4,5-tetrazine, TPMA = tris(2-pyridylmethyl)amine) exhibits strong ferromagnetic exchange between the S = 1 NiII centers and the bridging S = 1/2 bmtz radical with J = 96 5 cm-1 (-2JNi-radSNiSrad). DFT calculations support the existence of strong ferromagnetic exchange.
