A series of new stable fiinctionalised aryl ethynyl compounds bearing nitronyl-nitroxy and galvinoxyl radicals were synthesised as potential organic magnets with optical properties. Our goal is to construct biradicals in linear or broken rod molecules with the aim of probing i) the efficiency of the conjugation for the intramolecular spin exchange, and / or ii) the inter-Molecular Magnetic interaction between the neighboring radicals in the solid state Materials.
We focused our attention on the preparation of phenoxy, and galvinoxyl biradicals of the conjugated phenyl and thienyl diethynyl Moieties. The synthesis of these new components will be presented. Their optical and magnetic properties will be discussed both in solution and in the solid state.
