Mn‐Containing Paramagnetic Conductors with Bis(ethylenedithio)tetrathiafulvalene (BEDT‐TTF)
AbstractTwo novel paramagnetic conductors have been prepared with the organic donor bis(ethylenedithio)tetrathiafulvalene (BEDT‐TTF = ET) and paramagnetic Mn‐containing metallic complexes: κ′‐ET4[KMnIII(C2O4)3]∙PhCN (1) and ET[MnIICl4]∙H2O (2). Compound 1 represents the first Mn‐containing ET salt of the large Day’s series of oxalato‐based molecular conductors and superconductors formulated as (ET)4[AM(C2O4)3]∙G (A+ = H3O+, NH4+, K+, ...; MIII = Fe, Cr, Al, Co, ...; G = PhCN, PhNO2, PhF, PhCl, PhBr, ...). It crystallizes in the orthorhombic pseudo‐κ phase where dimers of ET molecules are surrounded by six isolated ET molecules in the cationic layers. The anionic layers contain the well‐known hexagonal honey‐comb lattice with Mn(III) and H3O+ ions connected by C2O42- anions. Compound 2 is one of the very few examples of ET salts containing ET2+. It also presents alternating cationic‐anionic layers although the ET molecules lie parallel to the layers instead of the typical almost perpendicular orientation. Both salts are semiconductors with room temperature conductivities of ca. 2 x 10-5 and 8 x 10−5 S/cm and activation energies of 180 and 210 meV, respectively. The magnetic properties are dominated by the paramagnetic contributions of the high spin Mn(III) (S = 2) and Mn(II) (S = 5/2) ions. View Full-Text
