Abstract :

A new family of [3.3.1] metallacryptates with the general composition [LnGa6 (H2 shi)(Hshi)(shi)7 (C5 H5 N)] (Ln-1 ; shi(3-) =salicylhydroximate ; Ln = Pr, Nd, Sm-Yb) has been synthesized and characterized. Ln-1 display both interesting magnetic and luminescent properties. Sm-1 has sharp emission bands in the visible and the near-infrared (NIR) regions with quantum yield values (QSmL ) of 1.64(9) and 5.5(2)(.) 10(-2) %, respectively. Tb-1 exhibits a weak green emission (QTbL =1.89(3)(.) 10(-1) %) while Pr-1, Nd-1, Ho-1, Er-1, and Yb-1 possess emission bands in the NIR range with QPrL =3.7(2)(.) 10(-3) %, QNdL =1.71(5)(.) 10(-1) %, QHoL =1.1(2)(.) 10(-3) %, QErL =7.1(2)(.) 10(-3) % and QYbL =0.65(3) %. Nd-1, Dy-1, and Yb-1 display slow magnetization relaxation in an applied field, where only Dy-1 has been observed to follow an Orbach process (Ueff =12.7 K). The combination of NIR emission with magnetic properties makes Nd-1 and Yb-1 attractive candidates as smart materials addressable in two manners.
