The synthesis and magnetic behavior of the first mesogenic μ-oxo-bridged iron(III) complex

Authors


Abstract

Metallomesogens are under investigation as potential molecular ferromagnets, ferroelectrics, and second order nonlinear optical materials. Metallomesogens containing FeIII ions are rare but here, the first liquid crystal containing two FeIII ions and teh first complex of FeIII exhibiting a nematic mesophase is reported. The synthesis and magnetic behavior of the μ-oxo-bridged complex of FeIII and Schiff's base are discussed.
