Nitronyl nitroxide derivatives bearing NH site, imidazolyl-2-nitronyl nitroxide (Im-NN), 4(5)-methyl-imidazolyl-2-nitronyl nitroxide (MeIm-NN), and benzimidazolyl-2-nitronyl nitroxide (BIm-NN) were synthesized, and were self-assembled by hydrogen bonding at NH site with nitrogen atom on imidazole ring or oxygen atom of nitroxide moiety. Ferromagnetic intermolecular interactions were observed in MeIm-NN and BIm-NN. The magnetic interaction can be rationally explained by McConnell model.
