Abstract

Construction of a molecular system in which the magnetic lattice exhibits long-range order is one of the fundamental goals in materials science. In this study, we demonstrate the artificial construction of a ferrimagnetic lattice by doping electrons into acceptor sites of a neutral donor/acceptor metal-organic framework (D/A-MOF). This doping was achieved by the insertion of Li-ions into the D/A-MOF, which was used as the cathode of a Li-ion battery cell. The neutral D/A-MOF is a layered system composed of a carboxylate-bridged paddlewheel-type diruthenium(II,II) complex as the donor and a TCNQ derivative as the acceptor. The ground state of the neutral form was a magnetically disordered paramagnetic state. Upon discharge of the cell, spontaneous magnetization was induced; the transition temperature was variable. The stability of the magnetically ordered lattice depended on the equilibrium electric potential of the D/A-MOF cathode, which reflected the electron-filling level. A ferrimagnetic order lattice has been artificially constructed by electron doping by lithium ion insertion from a magnetically disordered ground state in a neutral donor/acceptor metal-organic framework (D/A-MOF). The stability of the magnetically ordered lattice depends on the equilibrium potential of the D/A-MOF cathode. The results suggest a new strategy and direction for the design of molecule-based magnets.
