Rational functionalization of molecular materials : towards magnetic liquids and liquid crystals

Abstract : Developing efficient methods to process molecular magnetic materials remains a considerable challenge and constitutes one of the critical steps toward possible applications. In this scope, the development magnetic hybrids featuring liquid crystal properties or improved solubility appears as a promising approach. This thesis work aimed to design, synthetize and characterize new hybridmaterials based on the single-molecule magnets (SMMs), spin crossover (SCO) and electrontransfer (ET) complexes. Chapter I contains general information and theoretical concepts on these three classes of magnetic complexes (SMMs, SCO and ET complexes), followed by a bibliographicsurvey on hybrid magnetic materials. Chapter II, rational is focused on the functionalization ofMn12-based SMM towards liquid crystalline phases. In Chapter III, a series of pyridylbenzohydrazone-based Fe(II) SCO complexes is investigated in both crystalline and soft matter phase. Chapter IV is dedicated to the study of cyanido-bridged {Fe2M2} molecular squares(M = Co(II), Ni(II)), which are known to exhibit SMM and thermally- or photo induced ET,respectively with Co(II) and Ni(II). In these three experimental chapters, the influence of ligand functionalization on self-organization, thermal and magnetic properties of the resulting materials is discussed in detail.
