Abstract

Solutions of tris(2,6-dimethoxyphenyl)methyl radical (1) and lithium salts form solids showing unusual magnetic behavior. The propeller-shaped radicals, with their tripods of nucleophilic oxygens, are preorganized polydentate ligands. By coordination with small alkali metal cations the radicals may stack, enforcing spin-spin interactions in extended chains of paramagnets. Ab initio calculations on a linear H3C·Li+·CH3 model shows that high-spin (ferromagnetic) electron coupling is favored for a wide range of radical-Li+ distances.
