Calculations on the magnetic coupling interaction in the mixed bridged trinuclear nickel complexes with triazole and isothiocyanate bridge ligands have been carried out by using the density functional theory combined with the broken symmetry approach (DFT-BS). It is found that in the title complexes the coupling interaction of the triazole bridge is antiferromagnetic while the isothiocyanate bridge transfers a ferromagnetic coupling. As increasing the number of isothiocyanate bridge the ferromagnetic characteristic is enhanced. The Mulliken population analyses show that in the title complexes there is a spin delocalization mechanism of magnetic coupling through the bridges. From molecular magnetic orbitals, it is shown that there is a stronger orbital interaction among the local magnetic orbitals through the triazole bridge, while isothiocyanate bridge gives rise to a weaker orbital interaction among the local magnetic orbitals. It is important to note that the DFT-BS suitable to the transition metal binuclear complexes can be also applied to magnetic exchange interaction for the transition metal trinuclear complexes.
