2008_31/2008Spin Canting in a Cobalt(II) Radical Complex with an Acentric Counter Anion (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 31/2008)

The cover picture shows that cobalt(II) diradical complexes with centric and acentric counter anions, [CoCl(bisimpy)(MeOH)2]X (X = PF6 and ClO4), crystallize in the centrosymmetric and polar space groups of P21c and Pna21, respectively. The PF6 salt is paramagnetic down to 1.8 K, whereas the ClO4 salt shows a weak ferromagnetic long-range order with metamagnetic behavior at 1.8 K. Spin canting can arise from single-ion magnetic anisotropy and/or antisymmetric exchange interaction (Dzyaloshinsky–Moriya interaction). The noncentrosymmetric space group of the latter complex is compatible with both mechanisms. Details are discussed in the Short Communication by H. Oshio et al. on p. 4851 ff.
