亮点: 我们讨论了一种经济有效的方法来理解新一代稀土单分子磁体中的磁弛豫。它结合了晶体场参数的从头算计算、与局域模的磁弹耦合以及仅拟合三个微观参数的声子态密度的从头算计算。尽管与完全从头算方法相比要求要低得多,但该方法为观察到的弛豫的起源提供了重要的物理见解。通过将其应用于具有不同弛豫的高各向异性化合物,我们证明了该方法的可靠性,并指出了改善单分子磁体性能的思路。

亮点:观察到溶剂效应对两种单分子磁体性能的影响。四氢呋喃和甲苯溶剂可以分别在[Dy(OtBu)2(4-PhPy)5]BPh4 1和Na{[Dy(OtBu)2(4-PhPy)4][BPh4]2hf·hex 2中将赤道配位的4-苯基吡啶(4-PhPy)分子从五个切换到四个。这种交替显著改变了D5h和D4h中Dy(III)中心的局部配位对称性。磁学研究表明,2的磁各向异性能垒高于1,而由于对称效应,阻塞温度的关系正好相反。静电势的计算成功地解释了溶剂对分子结构变化的驱动力,证实了通过不同溶剂调节SMMs性能的可行性。

148.Methods and Models of Theoretical Calculation for Single-Molecule Magnets

Qian-Cheng Luo, Yan-Zhen Zheng*

 

亮点:理论计算在新兴的单分子磁体(SMMs)领域发挥着重要作用。 它不仅可以解释实验现象,还可以对合成进行指导。本综述重点讨论近年来在该领域中使用的计算方法。最常用和最有效的方法是完全活性空间自洽场方法(CASSCF),它可以很好地预测单核单分子磁体的性质。对于双核和多核单分子磁体,需要考虑磁交换,交换耦合常数可以通过蒙特卡罗模拟(MC)、通过POLY_ANISO程序的从头算计算和密度泛理论结合对称性破损态方法(DFT-BS)得到。此外还讨论了这些计算方法在设计高性能单分子磁体方面的进一步应用。

亮点:

单分子磁体是由磁性中心和有机配体组成的一系列配合物,而自旋和局域振动模式之间的耦合是磁弛豫的关键。由于自旋-声子耦合引起的振动势垒最近被证明为低于势垒弛豫和异常低的拉曼指数提供了解释,这两个难题已经困扰众多研究人员了几十年,并在许多实验中普遍存在。两项研究(Phys. Rev. Lett. 2020, 125, 117203  Phys. Rev. B 2021, 103, 014401)阐明了它们是多光学声子辅助拉曼过程的结果,介绍了这种弛豫机制的要点和广泛含义。该理论以量子方式统一理解了不同磁弛豫过程,也适用于更一般的体系。

亮点:具有高磁各向异性的镝化合物作为单分子磁体被广泛研究。本文用单晶方法研究了DyIIISMM {[Dy(OSiMe3)2(4-Mepy)5(BPh4)]0.5Toluene}中的各向异性磁热效应。由于高磁各向异性,在300 K时可以观察到角磁化。沿易轴方向测量的SMM行为与多晶样品相同。从易磁化轴到难磁化平面的旋转磁化19 KB= 5T时产生的最大磁熵变为3.05 kJ/kgK,使DyIIISMM可用作低温旋转磁制冷剂。

Highlight:首例具有整数自旋值的二聚蜂窝状拓扑格子的二维范德瓦尔斯磁性材料被合成出来。该二维拓扑结构由铁及叠氮根组成,通过有机分子层间的范德华力叠加而成。该叠加最薄处只有十层,约13纳米厚。该材料兼具拓扑自旋阻挫及二维磁体的特性,表现出了新颖的再入型自旋玻璃和硬的磁体行为,矫顽场近2特斯拉。研究者坚信将二维磁体与拓扑自旋阻挫结合在一起能产生一些新奇的物理现象及材料特性,有可能开拓一个可供研究的新方向。后续工作将从减少材料的厚度、设计新的理想拓扑结构等着手开展,进一步揭示该类二维磁性材料的特性。相关结果在线发表在Advanced Functional Materials 上。

Highlights:本文通过在轴向上采用带有苯基的醇氧基配体,成功地引入分子内的C−H∙∙∙π作用和分子间的C−H∙∙∙π和π∙∙∙π相互作用,增强了分子的刚性,并有效地抑制了零场量子隧穿,合成出目前最硬的D5h单离子磁体。自旋动力学计算发现,轴向配体的化学修饰改变了奥巴赫弛豫过程的起始跃迁,进而改变了与跃迁共振的振动模式。由此可见,无论是磁偶极相互作用还是超精细耦合作用,都很可能不是导致零场量子隧穿的唯一原因。分子的转振动可能扮演着不可忽略的角色。

Highlight:镝基单离子磁体是目前最有发展潜力的磁性储存分子材料,但现有的高性能单离子磁体很难在空气中稳定存在。在保证强的磁各向异性的同时,端基氟离子的引入可以很好地解决稳定性问题。但由于氟和稀土具有非常强的亲和力,在合成过程中很难杜绝氟离子桥连或直接与稀土生成氟化物沉淀,因此端基氟配位的镝基单离子磁体极少被报道。这里我们报道了一例具有端基氟离子配位的镝基单离子磁体:[C(NH2)3]4[DyF(piv)4](piv)2,首次利用氢键网络保护的方式,稳定端基氟离子。通过磁性和超低温荧光的分析,我们发现此例化合物具有较高的能垒,其在高配位镝基单分子磁体中名列前茅。

Highlights:本文报道了一例基于磁交换耦合的单分子磁环{Fe8Dy8} 1Dy。磁性测试显示,{Fe8Dy8}分子内为铁磁交换作用,在0.5 K下的M-H曲线中,在0.23特斯拉处观察到明显的S型,这是环形磁矩的主要特征。运用从头算(ab initio)方法揭示了FeIII和Dy金属中心之间的铁磁交换相互作用是产生此环形磁矩的关键。为阐明该环状分子中的Fe-Dy磁性相互作用,进一步合成了两个类似的只具有一种顺磁金属中心的化合物{Fe8Y8} 1Y和{Al8Dy8} 2Dy。比较表明,Fe-Dy的铁磁交换相互作用导致1Dy的基态与第一激发态产生了明显的能级交叉。电子顺磁共振(EPR)测试得到能级劈裂场Hc为−3.35 T,基态和第一激发态之间的能隙为107 GHz (3.55 cm−1),和从头算得出的环形磁矩与微观态一致。该单分子磁环的基态为四重简并,这在以往报道的单分子磁环(SMT)中是前所未有的。由于磁交换耦合可以为配体设计提供更多选择,因此我们的工作为下一代单分子磁环的设计提供了有效策略。

Highlight:铅的毒性激发了人们对制备无铅光伏材料的兴趣,其中双金属双钙钛矿(DP)策略是制备铅碘钙钛矿替代物的一种有效方法。与目前流行的Ag(I)-Bi(III)基双钙钛矿不同,在之前的工作中我们发现Cu(I)-Bi(III)基双钙钛矿具有更窄的带隙,大约1.6 eV。在这个工作中我们将展示一种使用环状脂肪胺(CAAs)的合成策略,从中我们可以看到环脂肪胺对控制Cu(I)-Bi(III)碘化物DPs的结构尺寸、薄膜取向和带隙起到至关重要的作用。在这些化合物中,使用“Z形”六元环的CAAs可以得到二维的无机结构(化合物1-5),而使用具有“C形”五元环的CAAs时得到了一维无机链(化合物6和7)。无论结构尺寸如何,这7种化合物都显示出1.53-1.67ev之间的窄带隙。我们发现当Cu-I-Bi角接近180°或八面体畸变较小时,禁带宽度较窄。此外,DFT计算表明,这种带隙具有平坦和直接的性质。有趣的是,由这些化合物形成的薄膜由于胺的对称性不同而显示出了相对于ITO基底的优先取向。对于镜面对称的二胺,无机层倾向于垂直于ITO;对于不对称二胺,无机层倾向于在ITO上随机定向;对于不对称单胺,无机层倾向于平行于ITO。这种现象在钙钛矿薄膜的制备领域还没有被报导过。为了进一步揭示这些材料在光伏应用中的潜力,我们以化合物3为代表研究了它们的光电性能。从20℃到130℃,化合物3的电导率增加了5个数量级,从3.97×10-10s/cm增加到2.78×10-5s/cm,因此化合物3表现出了标准的半导体行为。同时光电流响应实验表明这种材料在光吸收方面具有潜在的应用。

Highlights:本文报道了使用银(I)和铋(III)代替铅(II)并获得两个基于二维(2D)碘化物的无铅双钙钛矿,即(AMP)4[BiAgI8]2.H2O 1和(APP)4 [ BiAg18] .H2O 2,其中AMP = 4-氨基甲基哌啶,APP = 4-氨基哌啶。与我们之前报道的基于1,4-环己二胺的化合物(C6H16N2)2 [BiAgI8] .H2O具有间接带隙相比,这两个新的2D Ag-Bi双钙钛矿由于其不易扭曲的[AgI6]单元而具有直接带隙〜2.00 eV。此外,光电流响应实验表明,两种化合物在light和dark之间的差异均超过50 nA,这表明其在光收集方面的潜在应用。1和2在热和湿气下也是稳定的。它们在95℃和90%RH下显示出高质子传导性(〜10-4 S cm-1)。因此,这项工作为设计具有直接带隙的稳定的无铅双金属碘化物双钙钛矿提供了一条新途径。

Highlights:本文报道了三例五角双锥构型的钬基单离子磁体,通过对轴向上配体的微调,我们发现当轴向配体为配体场较强的三甲基硅氧负离子时,合成的化合物[Ho(OSiMe3)2(py)5][BPh4]磁翻转能垒达715(6)K,是钬基单分子磁体的新纪录,理论计算结果也表明能垒的极大提升源自于微观自旋态中具有纯的基态、第一乃至第二激发态,从而自旋可以跃迁到更高的激发态来完成磁翻转,得到更大的能垒。

 Highlights:现如今,基于环戊二烯配体的夹心状金属镝配合物表现出了非常优异的单分子磁体性质,吸引了很多研究者对于这一类带离域电荷的金属有机配体的密切关注。碳硼烷是一种由碳、硼、氢三种元素组成的簇状分子,其可以与不同的碱性物质反应重组为各式各样的结构。作为一大类金属有机配体,虽然目前有很多碳硼烷金属有机配合物报道,但是其磁性方面的研究却很少。本文首次报道了镝基碳硼烷配合物单分子磁体,发现带有两个离域电荷的碳硼烷五元环平面对于金属镝能够产生很强的磁各向异性,并预测了理想的夹心状结构会产生非常优异的单分子磁体性质。我们希望这项研究能够激发更多研究者对碳硼烷稀土化学的兴趣与关注。

Highlights:本工作以JACS封面文章形式报导了一例罕见的六芒星状高核稀土-过渡金属纳米团簇——{Ni36Gd102}。该团簇具有良好的溶液稳定性,外围的金属镍离子在含氮、硫配位点的配体作用下可以选择性地在可见光催化将CO2还原为CO(90.2%),其TON为29700、转换频率为1.2 s−1,超过了多数同类型的催化剂。而该团簇含有的大量稀土钆元素则使该分子固体在2K 和ΔH = 7 T时,产生了41.3 J·kg–1·K–1的磁熵变,在低温磁制冷方面具有较好的应用潜力。该工作是我们整个稀土基纳米团簇研究课题的一个新起点,尤其是只含氮、硫配位原子的配体的引入及其无意中的原位硫酸根离子的生成对于该类材料的合成具有指导意义。而性质探索方面,此前未有报导利用团簇进行光催化还原二氧化碳分子的研究,该团簇催化下的二氧化碳还原不仅效率高、还具有很好的选择性,主要得益于具有可逆配位点的镍金属的存在,如何进一步利用该金属离子进行更有效的分子设计是留给我们的下一个课题。与此同时,如何利用团簇周围有机配体的S原子及团簇的单分散性将这类分子材料进一步器件化、并拓展其在表面磁制冷的应用也是我们需要深入思考的研究课题。目前,我们正对这些方向进行研究,希望将来能做出更多更好的工作。

Highlights:本文合成了三个具有相似BH4-Dy-BH4轴向配位环境的镝基硼氢化合物Dy(BH4)3(THF)3 (1), [Dy(BH4)2(THF)5][BPh4] (2) and [Dy(BH4)2(18-C-6)][Na(THF)2(18-C-6)][BPh4]2 (3),三个化合物均由两个三齿的BH4–配体占据轴向配位点,但是却有不同的平面配体场。其中,化合物1的平面配位数为4,分别有三个THF和一个二齿的BH4–配位,具有变形的八面体几何构型;化合物2的平面配位数为5,有5个THF配位,具有变形的D5h局部对称性;化合物3的平面配位数为6,由18-C-6的6个O原子进行配位,具有变形的D6h局部对称性。理论计算表明,这三个化合物的磁各向异性轴都接近于BH4-Dy-BH4轴。但是,由于不同的平面配位环境,化合物1仅在加场抑制量子隧穿效应以后才能表现出慢磁驰豫行为,能垒只有37(1) K;化合物2在零场下有不明显的单分子磁体行为;而化合物3在零场下更高温度表现出单分子磁体行为,能垒约为125(21) K。由此可以发现,弱化平面配体的配位能力,有利于提升单分子磁体的性能。

Highlights:围绕具有五角双锥配位环境的Dy(III)基单分子磁体,该文章展开了系统的磁构关系研究,为设计更高能垒阻塞温度的单分子磁体打下基础。该文章发现:1) 能垒与轴向配体的有效配位半径(rDy)呈线性相关, Ueff = -5032 × 2rDy + 16171 (R^2 = 0.9226),计算发现有效配位半径与配体配位原子的电负性密切相关;2)结构相似的Dy(III)基单分子磁体,呈现相似的拉曼驰豫过程,因而能垒与阻塞温度及磁滞回线开口温度也有线性关联。
