A three-dimensional cyanide-bridged coordination polymer based on FeII (S = 2) and NbIV (S = 1/2) {[FeII(H2O)2]2[NbIV(CN)8]·4H2O}n (Fe2Nb) was modified at the self-assembly stage by inserting an additional formate HCOO bridge into its cyanide framework. The resulting mixed-bridged {(NH4)[(H2O)FeII-(μ-HCOO)-FeII(H2O)][NbIV(CN)8]·3H2O}n (Fe2NbHCOO) exhibited additional FeII-HCOO-FeII structural motifs connecting each of the two FeII centers. The insertion of HCOO was possible due to the substitution of some of the aqua ligands and crystallization water molecules in the parent framework by formate anions and ammonium cations. The formate molecular bridge not only shortened the distance between FeII ions in Fe2NbHCOO from 6.609 Å to 6.141 Å, but also created additional magnetic interaction pathways between the magnetic centers, resulting in an increase in the long range magnetic ordering temperature from 43 K for Fe2Nb to 58 K. The mixed-bridged Fe2NbHCOO also showed a much broader magnetic hysteresis loop of 0.102 T, compared to 0.013 T for Fe2Nb. View Full-Text
