Abstract

The synthesis and characterization of a tris-pyridyl/bis-β-diketone molecule (H2L) is reported. This compound acts as a hexadentate ligand towards CoII to facilitate the assembly of a tetranuclear molecular chain of closely spaced metals with formula [Co4L2(MeOH)8](NO3)4 (1), which exhibits a very flat [Co4L2]4+ platform, as determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction crystallography. Complex 1 readily exchanges axial methanol ligands with water molecules. The bulk magnetization of the resulting hydrate, 1a, shows that the metals in the [Co4L2]4+ moiety exhibit spin-orbit coupling and antiferromagnetic exchange interactions.
