  1. The D 5 Π–X 5 Δ (0,0) band of vanadium hydride at 654 nm has been recorded by laser excitation spectroscopy and represents the first analyzed spectrum of VH in the gas phase. The molecules were generated using a hollow cathode discharge source, with laser-induced fluorescence detected via the D 5 Π–A 5 Π (0,0) transition. All five main (ΔΩ = ΔΛ) subbands were observed as well as several satellite ones, which together create a rather complex and overlapped spectrum covering the region 15 180–15 500 cm −1 . The D 5 Π state displays the effects of three strong local perturbations, which are likely caused by interactions with high vibrational levels of the B 5 Σ − and c 3 Σ − states, identified in a previous multiconfigurational self-consistent field study by Koseki et al. [J. Phys. Chem. A 108, 4707 (2004)]. Molecular constants describing the X 5 Δ, A 5 Π, and D 5 Π states were determined in three separate least-squares fits using effective Hamiltonians written in a Hund’s case (a) basis. The fine structure of the ground state is found to be consistent with its assignment as a σπ 2 δ, 5 Δ electronic state. The fitted values of its first-order spin–orbit and rotational constants in the ground state are [Formula: see text] and B = 5.7579(13) cm −1 , the latter of which yields a bond length of [Formula: see text] Å. This experimental value is in good agreement with previous computational studies of the molecule and fits well within the overall trend of decreasing bond length across the series of 3d transition metal monohydrides.

  2. Abstract

    Three new polynuclear clusters with the formulae [Mn10O4(OH)(OMe){(py)2C(O)2}2{(py)2C(OMe)(O)}4(MeCO2)6](ClO4)2(1), Na[Mn12O2(OH)3(OMe){(py)2C(O)2}6{(py)2C(OH)(O)}2(MeCO2)2(H2O)10](ClO4)8(2) and [Mn12O4(OH)2{(py)2C(O)2}6{(py)2C(OMe)(O)}(MeCO2)3(NO3)3(H2O)(DMF)2](NO3)2(3) were prepared from the combination of di‐2‐pyridyl ketone, (py)2CO, with the aliphatic diols (1,3‐propanediol (pdH2) or 1,4‐butanediol (1,4‐bdH2)) in Mn carboxylate chemistry. The reported compounds do not include the aliphatic diols employed in this reaction scheme; however, their use is essential for the formation of13. The crystal structures of13are based on multilayer cores which, to our knowledge, are reported for the first time in Mn cluster chemistry. Direct current (dc) magnetic susceptibility studies showed the presence of dominant antiferromagnetic exchange interactions within13. Alternating current (ac) magnetic susceptibility studies revealed the presence of out‐of‐phase signals below 3.0 K for2and3indicating the slow relaxation of the magnetization vector, characteristic of single‐molecule magnets; theUeffvalue of2was found to be 23 K and the preexponential factorτ0~7.6×10−9 s.
