Description

The pressure measurements of magnetic materials give the opportunity to study the fundamental aspects of magnetism. In this study a molecular ferromagnet CoII(pyrazol)4]2[NbIV(CN)8]∙4H2O}n has been studied with the use of ac/dc magnetometry under hydrostatic pressure up to 13 kbar. The studied compound crystallizes in the I41/a space group where cyanido-bridged structure is decorated with pyrazole molecules coordinated to CoII centers [1]. It is a unique structure with one type of CoII -NC-NbIV linkage. The spin values of both magnetic ions are ½, with gCo≈4.55, gNb≈2.0 for cobalt and niobium respectively. The phase transition in ambient pressure occurs at TC=5.4 K. Initially applying pressure shifts the temperature of phase transition to lower values down to a critical point, after which further applied pressure starts to increase the TC. It has been proved that the compound is changing from a ferromagnetic ordered magnet without pressure to a ferrimagnet in high pressure. [1] D. Pinkowicz, R. Pełka, O. Drath, W. Nitek, M. Bałanda, A.
