Title: “Ligands-with-Benefits”: Naphthalene-Substituted Schiff Bases Yielding New Ni II Metal Clusters with Ferromagnetic and Emissive Properties and Undergoing Exciting Transformations

Abstract

The initial employment of the fluorescent bridging ligand N-naphthalidene-2-amino-5-chlorobenzoic acid (nacbH2) in metal cluster chemistry has led to new Ni12 (1) and Ni5 (2) clusters with wheel-like and molecular-chain topologies, respectively. The doubly-deprotonated nacb2- ligands were found to adopt four different coordination modes within 1 and 2. The nature of the ligand has also allowed unexpected organic transformations to occur and ferromagnetic and emission behaviors to emerge. The combined work presented here demonstrates the ability of some "ligands-with-benefits" to yield beautiful structures with exciting topologies and interesting physicochemical properties.
