We report the design, preparation and characterization of two families of thermally robust coordination complexes based on lanthanoid quinolinate compounds: [Ln(5,7-Br q)4]- and [Ln(5,7-ClIq)4]-, where q = 8-hydroxyquinoline and Ln = Dy, Tb , Er , Ho and Y. Samples of [Dy(5,7-Br2q)4] decompose upon sublimation, whereas the sodium salt of [Dy(5,7-ClIq)4] , which displays subtly different crystalline interactions, is sublimable under gentle conditions. The resulting film presents low roughness with high coverage and the molecular integrity of the coordination complex is verified through AFM, MALDI-TOF, FT- IR and microanalysis. Crucially, the single-molecule magnet behavior exhibited by [Dy(5,7-ClIq)4]- in bulk remains detectable by ac magnetometry in the sublimated film.
