About the Spotlight Collection
The research area of molecule-based magnets encompassing single-molecule magnets (SMMs), single-ion magnets (SIMs) and single-chain magnets (SCMs) has been extremely active in recent years. This field is truly interdisciplinary and the advances in this field have been possible only due to a concerted effort from synthetic coordination- and organometallic chemists, physicists, materials scientists, and theoreticians. Research in this field is driven by both academic curiosity as well as the possibility of finding exotic applications such as high-density information to quantum computation. While many challenges remain to be overcome before the potential of these new materials can be realized, there has been substantial progress both in the design and assembly of these new systems as well as in understanding of their properties. This appears to be an appropriate time to bring out a special edition of Dalton Transactions on this multi-disciplinary subject.
Articles will be added to this open and on-going spotlight collection as soon as possible after they are published. You can find a selection of the articles below and check out the growing collection online here:
