  1. Keith Murray says:

    Our paper on Mn(dca)2 and Fe(dca)2; listed at no. 21, came after a very exciting time, from ca. 1997, when we first were researching long-range ordered molecular magnets. Stuart Batten had been making M-dca and M-tcm networks with Richard Robson and we joined forces at Monash Univ to study their magnetic properties. I remember asking Boujemaa Moubaraki to recheck one system (possibly Co (dca)2 when the Squid output went extremely high; i.e the realms of ordered magnets.
    Attending an ICMM meeting in France, organised the the late Olivier Kahn and friends,, turned out to be very dramatic. Researchers were whispering from the darkened edges of the lecture room saying “you have lots of competition in M(dca)2 magnets; claim it as your’s!” Apart from a previous email from Peter Day letting us know of Mohamed Kurmoo’s involvement (we joined forces later); we were totally unaware of Joel Miller and Art Epstein’s work, contemporaneous with ours. Very exciting times!
    Like all good research areas, following Stuart and my review in 2003 (it gained a citation record in Coord Chem Rev), the M(dca)2 subject has matured and waned somewhat. Looking back, we were very pleased with paper no. 21 (top 40) and our other M-dicyanamide papers in Dalton Transactions and the exposure we received internationally.
    Best wishes to Dalton Trans!

  2. Happy 40th Birthday, Dalton Transaction.

    The journal’s 40 successful years in publishing high quality research work in inorganic chemistry is an award to editors, reviewers, authors and readers. I am very pleased to see our article is amongst the top 40 articles. Our article had reviewed important progresses in the field of supramolecular chemistry with the application for electrochemical molecular recognition. The unique aspect of this article is the explanation of a number of important fundamentals of electrochemical molecular recognition with very good experimental examples.

    This is the only article of mine published in Dalton Trans., although my co-authors (Beer and Gale) are both well known to readers of Dalton.

  3. […] We are at Dalton Transactions Top 20 most cited articles* now with the penultimate installment of our Top 40 Anniversary Countdown! We have made articles 20-11 FREE for you to read until the end of January – check them out below. Did you miss the previous installments of the countdown – catch up: Articles 40-31 and Articles 30-21. […]

  4. […] of our Top 40 authors such as Xiao-Ming Chen, Christoph Janiak and Keith Murray have already posted stories about their Top 40 papers on the blog. Why not join them in the discussion by posting your thoughts […]

  5. I also have social anxiety wherein I hate going to parties, clubs or any social function. My idea of going to a party is walking in the front door and out the back door.
