Abstract

The electronic and molecular structures of a high-spin carbene oligomer, hexakiscarbene B, having a two-dimensional spin structure were investigated by single-crystal ESR spectroscopy. B was designed on the basis of I-topological symmetry argument, and generated by the photolysis of the corresponding hexakisdiazo precursor A oriented in benzophenone-d10 host Single crystals at 2.3K. The observed ESR spectra from B were well reproduced by an exact diagonalization of the spin Hamiltonian with g=2.003, D= +0.01909 cm-1, E= - 0.00193 cm-1, and S=6, proving B to be in the tridecet (S=6) State. The temperature dependence of the total intensity of the tridecet Signals proved the observed tridecet State to be the ground State. A semiempirical calculation of the fine-structure tensor yielded the most probable molecular conformation of B in the host crystal.
