Abstract

The complexes (N 4444)3[Ln(dcnm)6] (Ln=La–Nd, Sm; N4444= tetrabutylammonium) display a decrease in the melting point upon fast cooling from a melt, which is shown by in situ synchrotron based X-ray powder diffraction to be due to the formation of a second, less thermodynamically stable, polymorph.
