In this work we have analyzed in detail the magnetic anisotropy in a series of hydrotris(pyrazolyl)borate (Tp−) metal complexes, namely [VTpCl]+, [CrTpCl]+, [MnTpCl]+, [FeTpCl], [CoTpCl], and [NiTpCl], and their substituted methyl and tert-butyl analogues with the goal of observing the effect of the ligand field on the magnetic properties. In the [VTpCl]+, [CrTpCl]+, [CoTpCl], and [NiTpCl]...

Intramolecular spin alignment in photomagnetic molecular devices: a theoretical study

Ciofini, Ilaria ; Lainé, Philippe P. ; Zamboni, Marta ; Daul, Claude A. ; Marvaud, Valérie ; Adamo, Carlo

In: Chemistry - A European Journal, 2007, vol. 13, no. 19, p. 5360 - 5377

Ground- and excited-state magnetic properties of recently characterized π-conjugated photomagnetic organic molecules are analyzed by the means of density functional theory (DFT). The systems under investigation are made up of an anthracene (An) unit primarily acting as a photosensitizer (P), one or two iminonitroxyl (IN) or oxoverdazyl (OV) stable organic radical(s) as the dangling spin...
