Abstract

Partial metathesis between two weakly-coordinating anions in the archetypical dysprosium metallocene DyCp*₂BPh₄ results in the first example of [BPh₄]⁻ as a bridging ligand in 4f metals, with a unique η₂,η₂:η₂,η₂-bridge. Magnetic susceptibility and relaxation dynamics studies along with ab initio calculations reveal improved slow relaxation of the magnetization in [Dy₂Cp*₄(μ-BPh₄)][Al(OC(CF₃)₃)₄] over its mononuclear congener, resulting in an energy barrier of 490 K/340 cm⁻¹ and waist-restricted hysteresis up to 6.5 K.
