Abstract in another language

Tara‐decorated terpyridines 1 –3 and their 1:2 Co2+ [Co(L )2](ClO4)2 (L = 1 –3 ) and Co3+ complexes [Co(L )2](ClO4)2(SbCl6) (L = 1 ,3 ) are reported. The solid‐state complex metrics of [Co(3 )2]2+ and [Co(1 )2]3+ indicate an assignment as spin‐quartet Co2+ or spin‐singlet Co3+, which is in accord with DFT and 1H NMR studies. Vis‐NIR spectra of 1[Co3+(L )2]3+ show characteristic Tara→Co3+ charge‐transfer bands, giving no direct indication of L ‐based oxidation events, irrespective of the solvent. Theoretical studies reveal no charge transfer induced spin transition in [Co3+(L )2]3+, although a substantial decrease of the HOMO‐LUMO gap prevails in [Co3+(1 )2]3+ as compared with [Co(tpy)2]3+. The destabilisation of the HOMO is not sufficient to allow an equilibration among closed‐ and open‐shell formulations. The computed singlet‐triplet and singlet‐quintet splitting in [Co(1 )2]3+ renders these open‐shell formulations to reside only moderately above the ground state. Design criteria are derived from this analysis aiming at a further stabilisation of the open‐shell species through implementation of more strongly electron releasing Tara substituents.
