Abstract

The magnetic properties and spin relaxation processes of a tetranuclear dysprosium(III) fused phthalocyaninato (Pc4−) quintuple-decker single-molecule magnet (SMM) (1) with non-equivalent octa-coordination geometries are reported. The structure of 1 is regarded as a dimer of Dy3+-Pc triple-decker SMMs with different magnetic relaxation characteristics, corresponding to the octa-coordination geometry sites Dy1 with C4 symmetry (ϕ1=23°) and Dy2 with D4d symmetry (ϕ2=45°). In an Hdc of 1750 Oe and T range of 1.8–3.75 K, the quantum tunnelling of the magnetization was suppressed, and the direct process was enhanced. The effects of the coordination geometry on the spin relaxation phenomena are examined.
