Magnetic Properties of Some N : N′-bis-Salicylidene-ethylenediamine Iron (III) Complexes

Naturevolume 207pages855856 (1965) | Download Citation



THE magnetic properties of some binuclear complexes of chromium (III) and iron (III) in which magnetic interaction was considered to occur through oxygen bridging groups were reported previously1. In the cases discussed, it was not possible to fit the magnetic data very satisfactorily to a model for spin interaction between the metal ions. We report here a complex of iron (III) with N-N′-bis-salicylidene-ethylenediamine in which we have been able to establish a binuclear formulation and account for the magnetic properties satisfactorily in terms of spin interaction between the two metal ions.
