Magnetic properties of nitronyl nitroxide radicals substituted in phenylboronic acid the BOH ⃛O hydrogen bond as a constituent unit of a one-dimensional suprastructure exhibiting a ferromagnetic spin interaction



The NO…HOB hydrogen bond has recently been shown to play a role as an intermolecular ferromagnetic spin coupler. Studies of this bound in phenylboronic acid derivatives substituted by the nitronyl nitroxide radical moiety are presented, in particular the synthesis, crystal structure, and magnetic properties of the para-substituted phenylboronic acid shown in the Figure and the corresponding meta compound. Boronic acid derivatives bearing the NO radical center are shown to be promising precursors for molecular magnetic materials.
