XPS study of the electronic structure of heterometallic complexes Fe2MO(Piv)6(HPiv)3 (M = Ni, Co)
Heterometallic complexes Fe2MO(Piv)6(HPiv)3 (M = Ni, Co) have been studied by XPS. The complexes are identified as high-spin complexes with metal atoms in oxidation states M(II) and M(III). A change in the ligand environment of metal atoms has an effect on both the energetic state of metal atoms and the XPS pattern. The substitution of a Co atom for the nickel atom in the heterometallic complexes changes the XPS pattern of iron and their magnetic state. For the Fe2MO(Piv)6(HPiv)3 complexes, quantum-chemical calculations have been performed at the density functional theory (DFT) level. In combination with XPS and magnetochemistry data, the quantum-chemical calculation demonstrates that the Fe, Ni, and Co atoms in the trinuclear complexes are in the high-spin local state and that the ground state is dominated by antiferromagnetic exchange interaction.
