Hybrid molecular materials based upon magnetic polyoxometalates and organic π-electron donors: Syntheses, structures, and properties of bis(ethylenedithio)tetrathiafulvalene radical salts with monosubstituted keggin polyoxoanions

Abstract : The syntheses, crystal structures, and physical properties of the series of radical salts made with bis(ethylenedithio)tetrathiafulvalene (BEDT-TTF or ET) and monosubstituted α-Keggin polyoxoanions of formula [XZ(H2O)M11O39]5- (XZM11 = Si(IV)Fe(III)Mo11, Si(IV)Cr(III)W11, P(V)Con(II)W11, P(V)Ni(II)W11, P(V)Cu(II)W11 P(V)Zn(II)W11, P(V)Mn(II)W11, and P(V)Mn(II)Mo11) containing a magnetic metal ion Z on a peripheral octahedral site of the Keggin union are reported. They all crystallize in two related series called α2 and α3. The general structure consists of alternating layers of the organic donor and the Keggin polyoxometalates. While the stoichiometry and α-packing arrangement within the organic ET layers are the same in the two phases, significant differences are observed in the anion layers. Thus, in the α3 phase the anions polymerize to form an unprecedented linear chain of Keggin anions along the c axis, while in the remaining compounds the anion layers are formed by discrete Keggin units. A salient feature of these structures is that in both phases the magnetic metal ion Z appears to be localized on two of the 12 possible octahedral sites of the monosubstituted Keggin anion, even if the Keggin anions are not bonded, as in the α2 phase. The organic layers are formed by two different kinds of stacks: an eclipsed chain with almost totally ionized ET molecules and a dimerized one with partially charged ET molecules that accounts for the semiconducting character of these salts. Magnetic measurements of the radical salt with the diamagnetic Zn-containing Keggin union indicate the presence of antiferromagnetic interactions in the organic sublattice (IJI ≃ 70 cm-1), together with a Curie tail at low temperatures, which has been attributed to a paramagnetic contribution coming from the progressive electron localization in the mixedvalence dimerized chain when cooling. All the salts having discrete magnetic unions (α2 phase) show magnetic behaviors which correspond to the sum of the magnetic contributions of the two sublattices. This observation indicates that the interactions between the two sublattices are quite negligible, a result in agreement with the EPR measurements. However, with the two radical salts having chains of Keggin anions (α3 phase: PMnW11 and PMnMo11) small differences between the ET and the tetrabutylammonium salts have been detected at low temperatures. In the [PMnW11] derivative these differences have been attributed to single- ion effects. In the [PMnMo11] derivative, these differences have been attributed to a weak antiferromagnetic Mn-Mn interaction promoted by the presence of a delocalized electron on the mixed-valence polyanion.
