Abstract

A series of new compounds containing rare earth cations (Eu to Yb) and paramagnetic cluster anion [Re6Te8(CN)6]3- was prepared and investigated. The X-ray structural analyses have revealed that the compounds [{Ln(H2O)4}{Re6Te8(CN)6}] · 2.5H2O; Ln = Eu (1), Tb (3), Dy (4), Ho (5), Er (6), Tm (7), [{Gd(H2O)3}{Re6Te8(CN)6}] · 2.5H2O (2) and [{Yb(H2O)4}{Re6Te8(CN)6}] (8) are three-dimensional polymers based on Re-CN-Ln interactions. Measurements of magnetic susceptibility for 2 and 5 showed that effective magnetic moment (at 300 K) was 8.13 μB for compound 2 and 10.79 μB for compound 5 with weak antiferromagnetic ordering appeared at low temperatures.
