    Abstract

    © 2019 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim We report four new complexes based on a {Ln III6 } wheel structure, three of which possess a net toroidal magnetic moment. The four examples consist of {Tb III6 } and {Ho III6 } wheels, which are rare examples of non Dy III based complexes possessing a toroidal magnetic ground state, and a {Dy III6 } complex which improves its toroidal structure upon lowering the crystallographic symmetry from trigonal (R (Formula presented.)) to triclinic (P (Formula presented.)). Notably the toroidal moment is lost for the trigonal {Er III6 } analogue. This suggests the possibility of utilizing the popular concept of oblate and prolate electron density of the ground state M J levels of lanthanide ions to engineer toroidal moments.
