Title: Synthesis optimisation and characterisation of the organic-inorganic layered materials ZnS(m-xylylenediamine){sub 1/2} and ZnS(p-xylylenediamine){sub 1/2}

Abstract

Hybrid organic-inorganic layered materials of the type ZnS(amine){sub 1/2}, where amine=m-xylylenediamine (MXDA) or p-xylylenediamine (PXDA), were synthesised using a simple solvothermal method. Since the samples crystallised in the form of very fine powder, X-ray powder diffraction techniques were used for structural characterisation. The crystal structure studies, involving direct methods, show that both compounds crystallised in the orthorhombic crystal system, but in different space groups: ZnS(MXDA){sub 1/2} in non-centrosymmetric Ccm2{sub 1}, ZnS(PXDA){sub 1/2} in centrosymmetric Pcab. The obtained materials are built according to similar orders: semiconducting monolayers with the formula ZnS, parallel to the (010) plane, are separated by diamines. The organic and inorganic fragments are connected by covalent bonds between metal atoms of the layers and nitrogen atoms of the amino groups. The optical properties of the hybrid materials differ from those of their bulk counterpart. In both compounds a blue-shift of about 0.8 or 0.9 eV was observed with reference to the bulk phase of ZnS. - Highlights: • New hybrid compounds: ZnS(MXDA){sub 1/2} and ZnS(PXDA){sub 1/2} were obtained. • Hybrids were studied using XRD, TG/DSC, XRK, SEM, UV–vis spectroscopy. • Structures of both materials were solved by powder diffraction methods.

  • A core-shell structured magnetic layered organic-inorganic material involving 5-aminosalicylic acid (5-ASA) intercalated Zn-Al layered double hydroxides (LDHs) and magnesium ferrite (MgFe{sub 2}O{sub 4}) is assembled by a coprecipitation method. The powder X-ray diffraction results show the coexistence of the clear but weak diffractions of MgFe{sub 2}O{sub 4} and ordered relatively stronger reflections of 5-ASA intercalated LDHs. The TEM image of magnetic 5-ASA intercalated LDHs reveals that the LDHs layer covers the MgFe{sub 2}O{sub 4} particles or their aggregates with particle size of 50-80 nm. The vibration sample magnetization (VSM) measurements exhibit the increase in saturation magnetization of magnetic 5-ASA intercalatedmore » LDHs samples with increasing amount of magnetic core. The XPS analyses account for a majority of Zn, Al and O atoms on the surface of magnetic particles. It is suggested that the magnetic core MgFe{sub 2}O{sub 4} was coated with LDHs layer probably through Zn-O-Mg and Al-O-Mg linkages, and a core-shell structured model is tentatively proposed.« less
  • Co[(CH{sub 3}PO{sub 3})(H{sub 2}O)] (1) and Co[(C{sub 2}H{sub 5}PO{sub 3})(H{sub 2}O)] (2) were prepared by the hydrothermal method and isolated as blue-violet platelet crystals. They were characterized by X-ray diffraction, FT-IR, TGA-DSC techniques and their magnetic properties studied by a dc-SQUID magnetometer. Compound (1) shows an hybrid layered structure, made of alternating inorganic and organic layers along the a-direction of the unit cell. The inorganic layers contain Co(II) ions six-coordinated by five phosphonate oxygen atoms and one from the water molecule. These layers are separated by bi-layers of methyl groups and van der Waals contacts are established between them. Inmore » compound (2), the layered hybrid structure is rather similar to that described for compound (1), but the alternation of the inorganic and organic layers is along the b-direction of the unit cell. The magnetic behavior of (1) and (2) as function of temperature and magnetic field was studied. The compounds obey the Curie-Weiss law at temperatures above 100K, the Curie C, and Weiss {theta} constants for the methyl derivative being C=3.36cm{sup 3}Kmol{sup -1} and {theta}=-53K and for the ethyl derivative C=3.62cm{sup 3}Kmol{sup -1} and {theta}=-75K, respectively. The observed magnetic moments for Co atom at room temperature (i.e. {mu}{sub eff}=5.18 and 5.38 BM, respectively) are higher than those expected for a spin-only value for high spin Co(II) (S=3/2), revealing a substantial orbital contribution to the magnetic moment. The negative values of {theta} are an indication of the presence of antiferromagnetic exchange couplings between the near-neighbors Co(II) ions, within the layers. [Co(C{sub n}H{sub 2n+1}PO{sub 3})(H{sub 2}O)] (n=1,2) are 2D Ising antiferromagnets at low temperatures.« less
  • Fe[(CH{sub 3}(CH{sub 2}){sub 2}PO{sub 3})(H{sub 2}O)] (1) and Fe[(CH{sub 3}(CH{sub 2}){sub 17}PO{sub 3})(H{sub 2}O)] (2) were synthesized by reaction of FeCl{sub 2}.6H{sub 2}O and the relevant phosphonic acid in water in presence of urea and under inert atmosphere. The compounds were characterized by elemental and thermogravimetric analyses, UV-visible and IR spectroscopy. The crystal structure of (1) was determined from X-ray single crystal diffraction studies at room temperature: monoclinic symmetry, space group P2{sub 1}, a=5.707(1)A, b=4.811(1)A, c=11.818(2)A, and {beta}=98.62(3){sup o}. The compound is lamellar and the structure is hybrid, made of alternating inorganic and organic layers along the c direction. Themore » inorganic layers consist of Fe(II) ions octahedrally coordinated by five phosphonate oxygen atoms and one from the water molecule, separated by bi-layers of propyl groups. A preliminary structure characterization of compound (2) suggests a similar layered structure, but with an interlayer spacing of 40.3A. The magnetic properties of the compounds were both studied by a dc and ac SQUID magnetometer. Fe[(CH{sub 3}(CH{sub 2}){sub 2}PO{sub 3})(H{sub 2}O)] (1) obeys the Curie-Weiss law at temperatures above 50K (C=3.81cm{sup 3}Kmol{sup -1}, {theta}=-62K), indicating a Fe +II oxidation state, a high-spin d{sup 6} (S=2) electronic configuration and an antiferromagnetic exchange couplings between the near-neighbouring Fe(II) ions. Below T=22K, Fe[(CH{sub 3}(CH{sub 2}){sub 2}PO{sub 3})(H{sub 2}O)] exhibits a weak ferromagnetism. The critical temperature of T{sub N}=22K has been determined by ac magnetic susceptibility measurements. Compound (2) shows the same paramagnetic behaviour of the iron (II) propyl derivative. The values of C and {theta} were found to be 3.8cm{sup 3}Kmol{sup -1} and -44K, respectively, thus suggesting the presence of Fe +II ion in the S=2 spin state and antiferromagnetic interactions between Fe(II) ions at low temperatures. Zero-field and field cooled magnetic susceptibility vs. T plots do not overlap below T=30K, suggesting the presence of an ordered magnetic state. The critical temperature, T{sub N}, has been located by the peaks at T{sub N}=26K from the ac susceptibility ({chi}'and {chi}'') vs. T plots. Below T{sub N} hysteresis loops recorded in the temperature region 16<T<26K show an S-shape, while below 15K assume an ellipsoid form. They reveal that compound (2) is a weak ferromagnet. The critical temperature T{sub N} in these layered Fe(II) alkylphosphonates is independent of the distance between the inorganic layers.« less
  • A new Ni(II) layered hybrid organic-inorganic compound of formula Ni{sub 2}[(NDI-BP)(H{sub 2}O){sub 2}].2H{sub 2}O has been prepared in very mild conditions from N,N'-bis(2-phosphonoethyl)napthalene-1,4:5,8-tetracarboximide (NDI-BP ligand) and NiCl{sub 2}. The X-ray powder structure characterization of the title compound suggests a pillared layered organic-inorganic hybrid structure. The distance between the organic and inorganic layers has been found to be 17.8 A. The inorganic layers consist of corner sharing [NiO{sub 5}(H{sub 2}O)] octahedra and they are pillared by the diphosphonate groups. DC and AC magnetic measurements as a function of temperature and field indicate the presence of 2D antiferromagnetic exchange interactions between themore » nearest-neighbor Ni(II) ions below 100 K. A long-range magnetic ordering at T{sub c}{approx}21 K has been established and is attributed to the presence of spin canting. AC magnetic measurements as a function of temperature at different frequencies confirm the occurrence of the magnetic ordering temperature at T=21 K and the presence of a slight structural disorder in the title compound. - Graphical abstract: A new layered hybrid organic-inorganic Ni(II) N,N'-bis(2-phosphonoethyl)-naphthalene 1,4:5,8 tetracarboxydiimide complex has been synthesized and characterized. Magnetic measurements as a function of temperature and at different fields show that the compound is magnetically ordered below T{sub c}{approx}21 K.« less
  • A new 3D-layered inorganic-organic hybrid [D/L-C{sub 6}H{sub 13}O{sub 2}N-H]{sub 3}[(PO{sub 4})W{sub 12}O{sub 36}].4.5H{sub 2}O (1), as racemic material in the solid phase, has been synthesized and fully characterized by elemental microanalysis, single crystal X-ray diffraction, and infrared, Raman, and proton nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopes. The most unique structural feature of 1 is its three-dimensional inorganic infinite tunnel-like framework that results in weak van der Waals interactions along the a-axis. A weak interlayer interaction between the titled layers provides a desirable condition to explore its potential as a host in a host-guest complex. The racemization has been observed in the crystalmore » structure with the centric space group (P2{sub 1}/c).
