Hot Article: Cocrystals by halogen bonding


This CrystEngComm Hot article investigates the formation of co-crystals from an isoindoline nitroxide and an iodoperfluorocarbon, and looks at the halogen bonding in the resulting crystals.

This is particularly interesting as organic spin systems such as this are of importance in the fields of spintronics and spin-based quantum computing. This method is fast and reliable, so the making of organic molecular magnetic materials is much easier.
