1D and 2D FeII Azide Coordination Polymers with Ferromagnetic Canting
Journal article, 2008
The two compounds [FeII(pyridine)2(N3)2(H2O)] (1) and [FeII(4-acetylpyridine)2(N3)2] (2) were prepared. The X-ray crystal structures show end-to-end (EE) bridging azides in both cases with a 1D Fe-NNN-Fe chain for 1 and a 2D Fe-NNN-Fe net in 2. Both compounds show similar magnetic behaviour where the high-temperature data are consistent with antiferromagnetic couplings and the low-temperature data indicate ferrimagnetic ordering based on spin canting at 20 and 45 K. Compound 2 also shows a hysteresis loop. These findings are compared to the related 3D coordination polymer [Fe(N3)2(4,4'-bipyridine)]. According to network analyses the latter compound was shown to contain the new uninodal six-connected-network topology (510 · 64 · 7)-jsm.
