Abstract

The syntheses and structural characterization of three new monodimensional azido-bridged manganese(II) complexes with empirical formulas [Mn(N3)2(aminopyz)2]n (1), [Mn(N3)2(4-azpy)2]n (2) and [Mn(N3)2(4-Bzpy)2]n (3) (pyz = pyrazine (1,4-diazine), 4-azpy = 4-azidopyridine and 4-Bzpy = 4-benzoylpyridine) are reported. 1 Is a monodimensional compd. with double EO azido bridges, 2 is an alternating monodimensional compd. with double end-on and double end-to-end azido bridges in the sequence di-EO-di-EE and 3 is a monodimensional compd. with double end-on and double end-to-end azido bridges in the sequence di-EO-di-EO-diEO-di-EO-di-EE. The magnetic properties of 1-3 are reported. Periodic DFT calcns. were performed to est. the J values and quantum Monte Carlo simulations were carried out using the calcd. J values to check their accuracy in comparison with the exptl. magnetic measurements. From this theor. anal., two appealing features of the di-EO Mn(II) compds. can be extd.: first, the exchange coupling becomes more ferromagnetic when the Mn-N-Mn bridging angle becomes larger and the spin d. of the bridging nitrogen atoms has an opposite sign to that of the Mn(II) centers.
