Magnetic property of a nitrogen (N)-coordinated neptunyl (+2) (Np(VI);5f1) complex 1 NpO2(acac)2(py) (acac = C6H7O22-, py = C5H5N) has been studied by 237Np Mössbauer and DC magnetization measurements, and is discussed with those of oxygen-coordinated neptunyl (+2) complex 2 NH4[NpO2(NO3)3]. The 237Np Mössbauer data showed that 1 exhibits typical paramagnetic-relaxation spectra at 11–40 K, similar to those of 2. While, the DC magnetization (M) data have revealed many striking features of 1 different from those of 2. First, its reciprocal magnetic susceptibility (1/χ) vs T(K) plots at 2–300 K showed a non-simple peculiar paramagnetic behavior shifting from a T-independent Van-Vleck type to a Curie-type with increasing field (H) from 0.002 to 5.5 T. Furthermore, at low temperature below ∼9 K, the isothermal M of the system exhibited anomalous relaxation behavior involving initial very large over-responsive M change and the subsequent gradual drift back to its `equilibrium' value (Meq). Moreover, such Meq of the system was often found to exhibit not-small run-to-run difference, very long-period slow variation in prolonged time scale, and strong perturbation effect from the SQUID-M measurement itself. Such novel magnetic features of 1 suggest the presence of largely metastable fluctuating magnetic (spin plus orbital) state in this supramolecule composed of individual Ising-type neptunyl (O=Np=O)+2 molecular magnets.
