Abstract
The synthesis, structural and magnetic characterisation of a family of homo- and heterometallic complexes constructed with the Schiff base ligands 2-iminomethyl-6-methoxy-phenol (L1H) and 2-imino-6-methoxy-phenol (L2H), are discussed. Members include the heterometallic tetranuclear complexes of general formula [Na2M2(X)2(L1)4(Y)2] (where M = FeIII, X = ¿OMe, Y = NO3¿ (1) and M = NiII, X = N3¿ and Y = MeCN (2)), each possessing a butterfly-like topology. We also report the formation of the heterometallic molecular cage [Na3Ni2(L1)6](ClO4) (3) whose metallic skeleton describes a [rare] trigonal bipyramid, the homometallic 1-D coordination polymer [Mn(L1)2(Cl)]n (4), and the tetranuclear cubane clusters [MnIII3MnIV(O)3(OEt)(OAc)3(L1)3] (5) and [Ni4(¿3-OMe)4(L2)4(MeOH)4] (6). Dc and ac magnetic susceptibility studies on complexes 5 and 6 reveal S = 9/2 and S = 4 spin ground states.
