Title: Local Lattice Distortions in Mn[N(CN) 2 ] 2 under Pressure

Abstract

We combined synchrotron-based infrared spectroscopy, Raman scattering, and diamond anvil cell techniques with complementary lattice dynamics calculations to reveal local lattice distortions in Mn[N(CN)2]2 under compression. Strikingly, we find a series of transitions involving octahedral counter-rotations, changes in the local Mn environment, and deformations of the superexchange pathway. In addition to reinforcing trends in the magnetic exchange anisotropy, these pressure-induced local lattice distortions may provide an avenue for the development of new functionalities.
