Thermodynamic Stability of Heterodimetallic [LnLn’] Complexes
The solid state and solution configuration of the heterodimetallic complexes, (Hpy)[CeEr(HL)3(NO3)(py)(H2O)] (1), (Hpy)[PrSm(HL)3(NO3)(py)(H2O)] (2) and (Hpy)2[LaYb(HL)3(NO3)(H2O)](NO3) (3), where H3L is 6-(3-oxo-3-(2-hydroxyphenyl)propionyl)pyridine-2-carboxylic acid, are analysed experimentally and through DFT calculations. The theoretical study is also extended to the [LaCe], [LaLu] and [CeGd] analogues. The results are consistent with a remarkable selectivity of the metal distribution within the molecule while in the solid state, enhanced by the size difference of both metals. This selectivity is significantly reduced in solution.
