2011_34/2011Heterometallic Oximato-Bridged Linear Trinuclear NiII−MIII−NiII (MIII = Mn, Fe, Tb) Complexes Constructed with the fac-O3 [Ni(HL)3] Metalloligand (H2L = pyrimidine-2-carboxamide oxime): A Theoretical and Experimental Magneto-Structural Study (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 34/2011)

The cover picture shows how oximate-bridged heterometallic trinuclear NiIIMIIINiII complexes can easily be constructed from the assembly of the “in situ” generated fac-O3 [Ni(HL)3] (H2L = pyrimidine-2-carboxamide-oxime) metalloligand (blue screw) with either M2+ ions (M2+ = Mn and Fe), which are oxidized during the course of the reaction, or Tb3+ ions (red nut). The nickel(II) ions in these centrosymmmetric trinuclear complexes exhibit opposite propeller-like chirality (the blue screws turn on the red nut in opposite directions). The red and green arrows are the spins of the M3+ and Ni2+ ions, and they are antiparalell, which indicates that the interaction is antiferromagnetic in nature. Details are discussed in the article by E. Colacio et al. on p. 5225 ff.
