Two new cobalt(II) complexes of formula [Co(hfac)2(NITphtrz) 1 and Co(hfac)2(IMphtrz) 2] have been prepared and characterized structurally [where NITphtrz = 4,4,5,5-tetramethyl-2-(2-phenyl-1,2,3-triazole-4-yl)imidazoline-1-oxyl-3-oxide and IMphtrz = 4,4,5,5-tetramethyl-2-(2-phenyl-1,2,3-triazole-4-yl)imidazoline-1-oxyl]. All of the complexes crystallize in an isomorphous triclinic space group with the Co(II) ion octahedrally coordinated via the bidentate chelating mode. The magnetic measurements show that two complexes exhibit antiferromagnetic interactions between the metal ions and the nitroxide radicals.
