We have investigated the magnetic properties of four recently synthesized stable TMM-type nitroxide diradicals. Four new diradicals are proposed by tailoring one of the species in such a way that both conjugation and planarity increase. As a remarkable consequence, the intramolecular ferromagnetic exchange interaction was found to be quite high in the proposed radicals. The calculated coupling constants were in the range of +102 to +140 cm-1. The MO and spin density analysis are provided to interpret the exchange interactions. We observed the existence of intramolecular π−π-interactions for the species 2. This slightly increased the J value by shortening the length of the spacer between the two spin sources.
We are working at the Institute of Nano Science and Technology Mohali, one of the leading research institutes in India in the field of Nano Science. INST is located in Chandigarh, one of the major cities of India.
