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.

    Tetravinylallene, a small but powerful molecule, has been synthesized for the first time

    Many natural compounds used in medicine have complex molecular architectures that are difficult to recreate in the lab. Help could come from a small hydrocarbon molecule, called tetravinylallene, which has been synthesized for the first time by Australian scientists. As detailed in the jour ... more

    Little Heaps of Silver, All Wrapped Up

    Nanoclusters are little “heaps” of a few atoms that often have interesting optical properties and could become useful probes for imaging processes in areas such as biomedicine and diagnostics. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, researchers have introduced a nanocluster of 16 silver atoms sta ... more

    Doped Photovoltaics

    Organic solar cells are made of cheap and abundant materials, but their efficiency and stability still lag behind those of silicon-based solar cells. A Chinese-German team of scientists has found a way to enhance the electric conductivity of organic solar cells, which increases their perfor ... more
