A new triphenolic hexaaza chiral macrocyclic amine L forms trinuclear complexes 1-3 with rare earth metal lanthanide(III) ions (Ln = Dy, Eu, and Y) with the general formula Ln(3)L(mu(3)-OH)(2)(NO3)(4)(H2O)(2)]center dot xCH(3)OH. The crystal structures of the nitrate derivatives of this type reveal the presence of a {Ln(3)(mu(3)-OH)(2)} core within the macrocycle. For the chloride derivative of dysprosium(III) 4, a duplex of the trinuclear compound is formed to give the hexanuclear Dy6L2(mu(3)-OH)(3)(mu-O)(2-Cl)(3)Cl-4(H2O)(2)] compound, in which two trinuclear macrocyclic units are linked by bridging chloride anions, supplemented by a hydrogen bond connecting the central oxo and hydroxo bridges as well as by weak interactions at the periphery of the macrocycle. The nuclear magnetic resonance spectra of these complexes reveal a dynamic behavior in solution related to exchange of axial ligands and hindered rotation of phenyl substituents. Magnetic studies of the nitrate (1-3) and chloride (4) dysprosium(III) complexes suggest the presence of weak ferromagnetic interactions between neighboring metal centers. The interaction is strongest for compound 1, and for the related duplex compound 4, it appears to be somewhat weaker. The ac susceptibility measurements for complexes 1 and 4 confirm their field-induced single-molecule magnet behavior with the following characteristics: Lie ff = 10.6 cm(-1) (15.2 K), ro = 2.05 X 10(-4) s under 2500 Oe dc fields for 1; Ue ff 7.9 cm-' (11.4 K), ao = 1.68 X 10(-4) s under a 3000 Oe dc field for 4.
