Description

Magnetocaloric effect for {[Mn(II)(pyrazole)4]2[Nb(IV)(CN)8]∙4H2O}n1), {Mn(II)2(imH)2(H2O)4[Nb(IV)(CN)8] ∙4H2O}n (2) and [Nb(IV){(μ-CN)4Mn(II)(H2O)2}2∙4H2O]n (3) is reported. The compounds belong to a class of 3D coordination polymers. They exhibit a phase transition to a long range magnetically ordered state at 22.8 K (1), 24.1 K (2), and 47 K (3). Heat capacity measurements by relaxation calorimetry in applied field of 0.1, 0.2, 0.5, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, and 9 T enabled to determine the magnetic entropy change ΔSM as well as the adiabatic temperature change ΔTad. The maximum values of ΔSM calculated for a field change of 5 T amount to 6.65 J kg-1 K-1 (1), 9.5 J kg-1 K-1 (2), and 9.01 J kg-1 K-1 (3). The corresponding maximum values of ΔTad are 1.4 K at 23.8 K (1), 2.02 K at 25.1 K (2), and 1.7 K at 49.0 K (3). The temperature dependence of the exponent n characterizing field dependence of ΔSM has been estimated. Exponent n attains the value of 0.64 (1), 0.67 (2), and 0.69 (3) at the transition temperature, which is close to that expected for the three-dimensional Heisenberg universality class. Universal scaling of the magnetic entropy change is discussed.
