Abstract: A series of three isostructural tetranuclear complexes with the general molecular formula [Ln4(µ3-OH)4(L)4(µ2-piv)4(MeOH)4] (Ln = Gd 1, Dy 2 and Ho 3; LH = [1,3-bis(o-methoxyphenyl)-propane-1,3-dione]) were isolated and unambiguously characterized by single crystal XRD. Under similar reaction conditions, simply changing the co-ligand from pivalate to 2,6-bis(hydroxymethyl)-p-cresol (LH'3) led to the isolation of dinuclear Ln(III) complexes with the general molecular formula [Ln2(L)4(µ2-LH'2)2]·4DMF (Ln =Gd 4, Dy 5 and Ho 6). Direct current magnetic susceptibility data studies on the polycrystalline sample of 1-6 and the results reveal the existence of weak antiferromagnetic exchange interactions between the lanthanide ions in 1 which is evident from the spin Hamiltonian (SH) parameters (J1 = −0.055 cm−1 and g = 2.01) extracted by fitting χMT(T). On the other hand, though complex 4 exhibits weak antiferromagnetic coupling ( J1 = −0.048 cm−1 and g = 1.99) between the Gd(III) ions, the χMT (T ) data of complexes 5 and 6 unambiguously disclose the presence of ferromagnetic interactions between Dy(III) and Tb(III) ions at lower temperature. Magnetization relaxation dynamics studies performed on 2 show frequency dependent out-of-phase susceptibility signals in the presence of an optimum external magnetic field of 0.5 kOe. In contrast, complex 5 shows slow magnetization relaxation with an effective energy barrier (Ueff) of 38.17 cm−1 with a pre-exponential factor (τ0) of 1.85 × 10−6 s. The magnetocaloric effect (MCE) of complexes 1 and 4 was extracted from the detailed magnetization measurement and the change in the magnetic entropy (−ΔSm) of 1 and 4 was found to be 25.57 J kg−1 K−1 and 12.93 J kg−1 K−1,respectively, at 3.0 K for ΔH = 70 kOe.
