A trinuclear Fe(III) complex [Fe3(OAc)3L3]
(1), a tetranuclear Mn(III) complex
[Mn4Cl4L4] (2) and a
tetranuclear Ni(II) complex [Ni4(MeOH)4L4]
(3) have been synthesized from the reaction of simple metal
salts with ligands derived from salicylidene-2-ethanolamine (H2L).
Structural characterization of the three complexes reveals distinctly different
topologies, despite the similar coordination modes of the ligand L2-.
Preliminary magnetochemical studies have been performed and reveal spin ground
states of S=1/2,8 and 4 for complexes 1,
2 and 3, respectively.
