MetadataShow full item record
The first borate-vacant deca-vanadoborate of formula (NH3CH2CH2CH2NH3)(5) [ (NH3CH2CH2CH2NH3)V10B24O66H8]center dot 13.23H(2)O with an occluded 1;3-propanediammonium cation; using molten methylboronic acid flux reaction is reported. This cluster lacks four borate units with respect to all known deca-vanadoborates. It crystallizes in the orthorhombic P2(1)2(1)2 space group which is non-centrosymmetric, leading to the first non-centrosymmetric deca-vanadoborate reported In the literature. Even though the decavanadoborates formed by 28 borate units have an inner space large enough to host a molecule, no examples have been reported before. The electronic properties were studied using electronic spectroscopy, corroborating a fully reduced species, due to the lack Of intervalence charge transfer transitions in the 1000 to 1500 nm region. The magnetic behavior provided evidence that the studied cluster presents strong antiferromagnetism among the ten V-IV spin-carriers, with an S = 0 ground state. tiring a model considering three different exchange pathways, three different J values were obtained, all of them antiferromagnetic in nature.
