The strategic design and synthesis of two isomeric CuII complexes, [CuLA] and [CuLB], of asymmetrically dicondensed N2O3-donor Schiff-base ligands (where H2LA and H2LB are N-salicylidene-N′-3-methoxysalicylidenepropane-1,2-diamine and N-3-methoxysalicylidene-N′-salicylidenepropane-1,2-diamine, respectively) have been accomplished via a convenient CuII template method. These two complexes have been used as metalloligands for the synthesis of three pairs of Cu-Ln isomeric complexes [CuL(μ-NO3)Ln(NO3)2(H2O)]·CH3CN (for complexes 1A-3A, L = LA, and for complexes 1B-3B, L = LB and Ln = Gd, Tb, and Dy, respectively), all of which have been characterized structurally. In all six isomorphous and isostructural complexes, the decacoordinated LnIII centers and pentacoordinated CuII centers possess sphenocorona and square-pyramidal geometries, respectively. The isomeric pair of Cu-Gd compounds shows field-induced slow relaxation of magnetization, although they present the typical isotropic behavior of GdIII complexes, indicating that slow relaxation is not due to the usual energy barrier originating from the magnetic anisotropy. The isostructural derivatives with the ion-anisotropic lanthanides TbIII and DyIII do not show slow magnetic relaxation with or without a direct-current bias field, demonstrating that the magnetic response of the isotropic system CuII-GdIII occurs through different mechanisms than the rest of the Ln cations. © 2020 American Chemical Society.
