Abstract

Crystal structures and magnetic properties of polymeric and trinuclear heterobimetallic MnIII···PtII···MnIII coordination compounds, prepared from the Ba[Pt(CN)4] and [Mn(L4A/B)(Cl)] (1a/b) precursor complexes, are reported. The polymeric complex [{Mn(L4A)}24-Pt(CN)4}]n (2a), where H2L4A = N,N’-ethylene-bis(salicylideneiminate), comprises the {Mn(L4A)} moieties covalently connected through the [Pt(CN)4]2− bridges, thus forming a square-grid polymeric structure with the hexacoordinate MnIII atoms. The trinuclear complex [{Mn(L4B)}2{μ-Pt(CN)4}] (2b), where H2L4B = N,N’-benzene-bis(4-aminodiethylene-salicylideneiminate), consists of two [{Mn(L4B)} moieties, involving pentacoordinate MnIII atoms, bridged through the tetracyanidoplatinate (II) bridges to which they are coordinated in a trans fashion. Both complexes possess uniaxial type of magnetic anisotropy, with D (the axial parameter of zero-field splitting) = −3.7(1) in 2a and −2.2(1) cm−1 in 2b. Furthermore, the parameters of magnetic anisotropy 2a and 2b were also thoroughly studied by theoretical complete active space self-consistent field (CASSCF) methods, which revealed that the former is much more sensitive to the ligand field strength of the axial ligands.
