    Résumé : The strategic recombination of preformed coordination clusters in the presence of polymodal bridging ligands has successfully led to the characterisation of five new compounds of structural and magnetic interest. Indeed using the dinuclear complex [M-2(H2O)(piv)(4)(Hpiv)(4)] (M = Co, Ni; Hpiv = pivalic acid) as starting material and reacting it with phenylhydroxamic acid (H(2)pha) has yielded the four tetrametallic coordination clusters [Co-4(Hpha)(2)(piv)(6)(Hpiv)(4)] (1), [Ni-4(Hpha)(2)(piv)(6)(Hpiv)(2)(DMF)(2)] (2), [Co-4(Hpha)(2)(piv)(6)(EtOH)(2)(H2O)(2)] (3), [Ni-4(Hpha)(2)(piv)(6)(EtOH)(2)(H2O)(2)] (4) and the hexanuclear complex [Co-6(Hpha)(4)(piv)(8)(EtOH)(2)]center dot EtOH (5). All the compounds have been structurally characterised revealing a particular binding mode for the hydroxamate ligand. The study of their magnetic properties has been performed and the modelling of these properties has been done using the appropriate hamiltonians for each compound. The experimental data and their modelling show non-zero spin ground states for compounds 4 and 5.

    Résumé : Two novel double-stranded dicopper(II) metallacyclophanes of formula (nBu4N)4[Cu2(dpeba)2]·4MeOH·2Et2O (1) and (nBu4N)4[Cu2(tpeba)2]·12H2O (2) have been prepared by the CuII-mediated self-assembly of the rigid (?rod-like?) bridging ligands N,N?-4,4?-diphenylethynebis(oxamate) (dpeba) and N,N?-1,4-di(4-phenylethynyl)phenylenebis(oxamate) (tpeba), respectively. Single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis of 1 confirms the presence of a dicopper(II)tetraaza[3.3]4,4?-diphenylethynophane metallacyclic structure featuring a very long intermetallic distance between the two square planar CuII ions [r = 14.95(1) Å]. The overall parallel-displaced π-stacked conformation of the two nearly planar para substituted diphenylethyne spacers [dihedral angle (?) of 7.8(1)°] leads to important deviations from the perpendicular orientation of the copper mean basal planes with respect to the facing benzene planes [dihedral angles (?) of 56.4(1) and 58.4(1)°]. X-band EPR spectra together with variable-temperature magnetic susceptibility and variable-field magnetization measurements of 1 and 2, both in solution and in the solid state, show the occurrence of a non-negligible, moderate to weak intramolecular antiferromagnetic coupling [?J = 3.9?4.1 (1) and 0.5?0.9 cm?1 (2); H = ?JS1·S2 with S1 = S2 = SCu = 1/2]. Density functional calculations on the BS singlet (S = 0) and triplet (S = 1) spin states of the model complexes 1 and 2 with an ideal orthogonal molecular geometry (? = 0° and ? = 90°) support the occurrence of a spin polarization mechanism for the propagation of the exchange interaction between the two unpaired electrons occupying the dxy orbital of each square planar CuII ion through the predominantly π-type orbital pathway of the double p-diphenylethyne (1) and di(phenylethynyl)phenylene spacers (2). Time-dependent density functional calculations reproduce the observed bathochromic shift of the main intraligand (IL) π?π* transition in the electronic absorption spectra of 1 and 2 [?1 = 308 (1) and 316 nm (2)]. In the series of orthogonal model complexes 1?5 with linear oligo(p-phenylene-ethynylene) (OPE) spacers, ?C6H4(C≡CC6H4)n? (n = 1?5), a linear increase of the IL π?π* transition energy with the reciprocal of the intermetallic distance is theoretically predicted [?max = 1.99 ? 104 + 2.15 ? 105 (1/r) (S = 0) or ? = 2.01 ? 104 + 2.18 ? 105 (1/r) (S = 1)], which clearly indicates that the effective π-conjugation length increases with the number of phenylethyne repeating units. This is accompanied by an exponential decay of the antiferromagnetic coupling with the intermetallic distance [?J = 1.08 ? 103 exp(?0.31r)], which supports the ability of the extended π-conjugated OPEs to mediate the exchange interaction between the unpaired electrons of the two CuII centers with intermetallic distances in the range of 1.5?4.3 nm. Further developments may be then envisaged for this new family of oxamato-based dicopper(II) oligo-p-phenylethynophanes on the basis of the unique ligand capacity to act as a molecular antiferromagnetic wire.

    Résumé : Based on nickel hexacyanidochromate and cobalt hexacyanidoferrate Prussian blue analogues, two series of photomagnetic/ferromagnetic sub-50 nm core multishell coordination nanoparticles have been synthesized in a surfactant-free one-pot multistep procedure with good control over the dispersity (10% standard deviation) and good agreement with the targeted size at each step. The composition and the valence state of each shell have been probed by different techniques that have revealed the predominance of CoII-NC-FeIII pairs in a series synthesized without alkali while CoIII-NC-FeII photoswitchable pairs have been successfully obtained in the photoactive coordination nanoparticles by control of Cs+ insertion. When compared, the photoinduced behavior of the latter compound is in good agreement with that of the model one. Exchange coupling favors a uniform reversal of the magnetization of the heterostructured nanoparticles, with a large magnetization brought by a soft ferromagnetic shell and a large coercivity due to a harder photomagnetic shell. Moreover, a persistent increase of the photoinduced magnetization is observed for the first time up to the ordering temperature (60 K) of the ferromagnetic component because of a unique synergy.

    Résumé : Double-stranded anionic dinuclear copper(II) metallacyclic complexes of the paracyclophane type [Cu2L2](4-) have been prepared by the Cu-II-mediated self-assembly of different para-phenylenebis(oxamato) bridging ligands with either zero-, one-, or four-electron-donating methyl substituents (L=N,N-para-phenylenebis(oxamate) (ppba; 1), 2-methyl- N,N-para-phenylenebis(oxamate) (Meppba; 2), and 2,3,5,6-tetramethyl- N,N-para-phenylenebis(oxamate) (Me(4)ppba; 3)). These complexes have been isolated as their tetra-n-butylammonium (1a-3a), lithium(I) (1b-3b), and tetraphenylphosphonium salts (1c-3c). The X-ray crystal structures of 1a and 3c show a parallel-displaced -stacked conformation with a smaller deviation from perpendicularity between the two benzene rings and the basal planes of the square planar Cu-II ions when increasing the number of methyl substituents (average dihedral angles (phi) of 58.72(7) and 73.67(5)degrees for 1a and 3c, respectively). Variable-temperature (2.0-300K) magnetic-susceptibility measurements show an overall increase of the intramolecular antiferromagnetic coupling with the number of methyl substituents onto the para-phenylene spacers (-J=75-95, 100-124, and 128-144cm(-1) for 1a-c, 2a-c, and 3a-c, respectively; H=-JS(1)xS(2)). Cyclic voltammetry (CV) measurements show a reversible one-electron oxidation of the double polymethyl-substituted para-phenylenediamidate bridging skeleton at a relatively low formal potential that decreases with the number of methyl substituents (E-1=+0.33, +0.24, and +0.15V vs. SCE for 1-3, respectively). The monooxidized dicopper(II) -radical cation species 3 prepared by the chemical oxidation of 3 with bromine exhibits intense metal-to-ligand charge-transfer (MLCT) transitions in the visible and near-IR ((max)=595 and 875nm, respectively) regions together with a rhombic EPR signal with a seven-line splitting pattern due to hyperfine coupling with the nuclear spin of the two Cu-II ions. Density functional (DF) calculations for 3 evidence a characteristic iminoquinonoid-type short-long-short alternating sequence of CN and CC bonds for both tetramethyl-para-phenylenediamidate bridges and a large amount of spin density of negative sign mainly delocalized along each of the four benzene C atoms directly attached to the amidate N atoms, which is in agreement with a fully delocalized -stacked monoradical ligand description. Hence, the spins of the two Cu-II ions (S-Cu=1/2) that are antiparallel aligned in 3 (OFF state) become parallel in 3 (ON state). Further developments may be then envisaged for this new permethylated dicopper(II) paracyclophane with a redox noninnocent ligand as a prototype for molecular magnetic electroswitch.

    Résumé : Recently, we reported on the bistable configurational switching of dibenzo[a,h]thianthrene (DBTH) molecules adsorbed on NaCl using combined low-temperature scanning tunneling and atomic force microscopy (STM/AFM). Here, we discuss the intra-molecular contrast in AFM images of the molecules as a function of the tip-molecule distance. Our experiments show that ridges in the frequency shift do not necessarily correlate with chemical bonds in this case of a non-planar molecule. To explain this finding we compare images acquired at different tip-molecule distances to the calculated electron density of the molecules obtained from density functional theory calculations (DFT). In addition, we analyze the probability of finding different configurations after adsorption onto the surface. DBTH molecules in two configurations probed by a CO-functionalized tip. Insets show AFM (left) and STM (right) images of a U molecule.

    Résumé : The local symmetry and local magnetic properties of 6nm-sized, bimetallic, cyanide-bridged CsNiCr(CN)6 coordination nanoparticles 1 and 8nm-sized, trimetallic, CsNiCr(CN)6@CsCoCr(CN)6 coreshell nanoparticles 2 were studied by X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) and X-ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD). The measurements were performed at the NiII, CoII, and CrIII L2,3 edges. This study revealed the presence of distorted NiII sites located on the particle surface of 1 that account for the uniaxial magnetic anisotropy observed by SQUID measurements. For the coreshell particles, a combination of the exchange anisotropy between the core and the shell and the pronounced anisotropy of the CoII ions is the origin of the large increase in coercive field from 120 to 890Oe on going from 1 to 2. In addition, XMCD allows the relative orientation of the magnetic moments throughout the coreshell particles to be determined. While for the bimetallic particles of 1, alignment of the magnetic moments of CrIII ions with those of NiII ions leads to uniform magnetization, in the coreshell particles 2 the magnetic moments of the isotropic CrIII follow those of CoII ions in the shell and those of NiII ions

    in the core, and this leads to nonuniform magnetization in the whole nanoobject, mainly due to the large difference in local anisotropy between the CoII ions belonging to the surface and the NiII ions in the core.

    Résumé : The spontaneous degradation of lansoprazole, omeprazole and pantoprazole tablets upon long-term and forced storage conditions was determined by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). The more abundant products could be isolated by liquid chromatography and their molecular weights determined by Mass Spectrometry (MS). Their structures, established according to their spectroscopic data, were compared to those of either the literature or of authentic samples. Thus lansoprazole led mainly to a mixture of 3H-benzimidazole-2-thione (2a) and 3H-benzimidazole-2-one (2c), omeprazole mainly to a mixture of 5-methoxy-3H-benzimidazole-2-thione (1a) and 2-hydroxymethyl-3, 5-dimethyl-4-methoxypyridine (1b), and pantoprazole, to 5-difluoromethoxy-3H-benzimidazole-2-thione (3a) and 2-hydroxymethyl-3, 4-dimethoxypyridine (3b). Although some of the degradation products had already been observed under different conditions, the detection of benzimidazole-2-thiones is unprecedented and their involvement as possible physiological, yet toxic antioxidants must be emphasized. Plausible, unified mechanisms for the formation of the different degradation products observed herein and in previous papers from the literature are suggested.

X-ray analysis reveals that 1 crystallizes in monoclinic P2(1)/c. Complex 1 can be described as three terminal [Cu(bpy)(2)](2+) units bridged by one asymmetric H(3)Imbm ligand with its peripheral three chelating pockets to capture three Cu atoms in a scalene-triangular geometry. The variable-temperature magnetic measurement was recorded for the crystallographically characterized 1, and the magnetic response was analyzed very well using a scalene triangle Cu3 model, indicating a dominant antiferromagnetic coupling with J(12) = 44.3 cm(-1), J(23) = -27.3 cm(-1), and g = 2.08, given J(13) = 0.
