Abstract

The synthesis and electrical and magnetic properties of two metal-iodide cyclodextrin compounds are described. Both Ba and Fe ions were added to the α-cyclodextrins to form needle-shaped single crystals. The compounds have electrical conductivities of about 10-9 (ω cm)-1 at room temperature. The Ba compound is diamagnetic but the Fe compound shows Curie-Weiss behavior in its susceptibility between 1.5 and 108 K, with an effective moment of 4.5 μB and a Weiss temperature of -5.6 K. The results indicate antiferromagnetic interactions between Fe(II) ions. A discussion is given of some problems associated with synthesizing quasi-one-dimensional conductors or magnetic compounds, using the cyclodextrins as a basis.
