Abstract

© 2018 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim. The synthesis, magnetic properties, and theoretical studies of three heterometallic {Cr III Ln III 6 } (Ln=Tb, Ho, Er) complexes, each containing a metal topology consisting of two Ln 3 triangles connected via a Cr III linker, are reported. The {CrTb 6 } and {CrEr 6 } analogues display slow relaxation of magnetization in a 3000 Oe static magnetic field. Single-crystal measurements reveal opening up of the hysteresis loop for {CrTb 6 } and {CrHo 6 } molecules at low temperatures. Ab initio calculations predict toroidal magnetic moments in the two Ln 3 triangles, which are found to couple, stabilizing a con-rotating ferrotoroidal ground state in Tb and Ho examples and extend the possibility of observing toroidal behaviour in non Dy III complexes for the first time.
