A new family of molecule-based magnets related to the V[PTCE]x â ¢ yCH2Cl2 magnet (PTCE = phenyltricyanoethylene, x = ~2, y = ~0.2) was synthesized utilizing new reversible one-electron acceptors with the general form MexPTCE (PTCE = phenyltricyanoethylene, x is the number of methyl groups on the phenyl ring, Me = -CH3). These new acceptors were synthesized for the purpose of studying electronic and steric effects of the substitution of the phenyl ring with electron donating groups on the overall magnetic properties of the solid, specifically to contrast their behavior with materials that contain similar trifluoromethyl (-CF3) substituted acceptors. These electr...
