Construction of an Artificial Ferrimagnetic Lattice by Lithium Ion Insertion into a Neutral Donor/Acceptor Metal–Organic Framework


Construction of a molecular system in which the magnetic lattice exhibits long‐range order is one of the fundamental goals in materials science. In this study, we demonstrate the artificial construction of a ferrimagnetic lattice by doping electrons into acceptor sites of a neutral donor/acceptor metal–organic framework (D/A‐MOF). This doping was achieved by the insertion of Li‐ions into the D/A‐MOF, which was used as the cathode of a Li‐ion battery cell. The neutral D/A‐MOF is a layered system composed of a carboxylate‐bridged paddlewheel‐type diruthenium(II,II) complex as the donor and a TCNQ derivative as the acceptor. The ground state of the neutral form was a magnetically disordered paramagnetic state. Upon discharge of the cell, spontaneous magnetization was induced; the transition temperature was variable. The stability of the magnetically ordered lattice depended on the equilibrium electric potential of the D/A‐MOF cathode, which reflected the electron‐filling level.

Ein Gitter mit ferrimagnetischer Ordnung wurde durch Elektronendotierung mittels Lithiumioneninsertion ausgehend von dem magnetisch ungeordneten Grundzustand eines neutralen Metall‐organischen Donor‐Akzeptor‐Gerüsts (D/A‐MOF) erzeugt. Wie stabil das magnetisch geordnete Gitter ist, hängt vom Gleichgewichtspotential der D/A‐MOF‐Kathode ab. Die Ergebnisse deuten eine neue Designstrategie für molekülbasierte Magnete an.

    From Sea to Lab

    With its vast numbers of different lifeforms, the sea is a largely unexplored source of natural products that could be starting points for new pharmaceuticals, such as the antitumor drugs trabectedin and lurbinectedin. Because only tiny amounts can be obtained from sea organisms, synthetic ... more

    Finding Chemicals inside a Cell

    How are chemicals distributed in a cell? Chinese scientists have developed a combined mass spectrometry and biological imaging device that enables direct, label-free detection, and high-resolution mapping of chemicals inside a biological cell. As demonstrated in their publication in the jou ... more

    Optimized Binding Cavity

    The impressively high conversion rates of natural enzymes partly result from increasing the catalytic activity of a selected few amino acid side chains through precise positioning within the protein binding cavity. Scientists have now demonstrated that such fine-tuning is also possible for ... more
