From double-decker to quintuple-decker: single-molecule magnetic behaviour and f-f interactions

This article is HOT as recommended by the referees. And we’ve made it free to access for 4 weeks

This Hot Article from Masahiro Yamashita and Keiichi Katoh investigates the interactions among the 4f electrons of some multiple-decker Tb3+ and Dy3+ complexes, revealing the importance of molecular symmetry and coordination geometry.

Multiple-decker phthalocyaninato dinuclear lanthanoid(III) single-molecule magnets with dual-magnetic relaxation processes

Correlation between the χM′′(T) peak blocking temperature and the distance between the two Tb(III) ions

Single molecule magnets (SMMs) exhibit superparamagnetism at the molecular scale and have potential application in quantum computing, information storage and magnetic refrigeration. Understanding the relationship between the local environment of complexes and their magnetic properties is important to develop new SMMs with desirable magnetic relaxation behaviours.
