Magnetostructural and EPR Studies of Anisotropic Vanadium trans-Dicyanide Molecules. Academic Article uri icon


  • A series of trans-dicyanide vanadium(III) compounds based on acetylacetonate, (PPN)[VIII(acac)2(CN)2]·(PPN)Cl·2MeCN (1), and salen ligands, (Et4N)[VIII(salen)(CN)2] (2a), (PPN)[VIII(MeOsalen)(CN)2]·DMF·2MeCN (3), and (PPN)[VIII(salphen)(CN)2]·DMF (4) [salen = N,N'-ethylenebis(salicyl-imine), MeOsalen = N,N'-ethylenebis(methoxysalicylimine), salphen = N,N'-phenylenebis(salicyl-imine), and PPN = bis(triphenylphosphine)iminium], were prepared and structurally characterized. High-field EPR studies reveal that the complexes exhibit moderate magnetic anisotropy with positive D values of +5.70, +3.80, +4.05, and +3.99 cm-1 for 1-4, respectively.
