Molecular Nanomagnets
Quantum mechanical tunneling of the direction of magnetization is discussed for several examples of single-molecule magnets (SMM's). Magnetization tunneling is described for two crystallographicallyExpand
Studies on bifunctional Fe(II)-triazole spin crossover nanoparticles: time-dependent luminescence, surface grafting and the effect of a silica shell and hydrostatic pressure on the magnetic properties
Pure and silica wrapped Fe(II)-triazole (FeHTrz) spin-crossover (SCO) nanoparticles have been prepared following a water-in-oil synthetic procedure. The size and shape can be tuned by controlling theExpand
A record anisotropy barrier for a single-molecule magnet.
Structural distortion in a [Mn6] complex switches the magnetic exchange from antiferro- to ferromagnetic, resulting in a single-molecule magnet with a record anisotropy barrier.
Dilution-triggered SMM behavior under zero field in a luminescent Zn2Dy2 tetranuclear complex incorporating carbonato-bridging ligands derived from atmospheric CO2 fixation.
Analysis of the relaxation data points out that a Raman relaxation process could significantly affect the Orbach relaxation process, reducing the thermal energy barrier U(eff) for slow relaxation of the magnetization. Expand
Single-molecule magnets: a new class of tetranuclear manganese magnets.
A molecule with a large-spin ground state with D < 0 can function as a single-molecule magnet, as detected by techniques such as ac magnetic susceptibility. Expand
Large spin differences in structurally related Fe6 molecular clusters and their magnetostructural explanation.
A dramatic difference of 10 unpaired electrons in the ground state S values for near-isomeric compounds demonstrates an acute sensitivity of the magnetic properties to small structural changes. Expand
An Ni4 Single‐Molecule Magnet: Synthesis, Structure and Low‐Temperature Magnetic Behavior
The reaction of Ni(NO3)2·6H2O with H3thme (trihydroxymethylethane) in the presence of NaOMe leads to a tetranuclear Ni4 complex with a cubane-like structure. Intramolecular ferromagnetic interactionsExpand
Direct observation of quantum coherence in single-molecule magnets.
The clear observation of Rabi oscillations indicates that the authors can manipulate the spin coherently, an essential prerequisite for performing quantum computations. Expand
Closely-related Zn(II)2Ln(III)2 complexes (Ln(III) = Gd, Yb) with either magnetic refrigerant or luminescent single-molecule magnet properties.
Variable-temperature magnetization measurements and heat capacity data demonstrate that 1 has a significant magneto-caloric effect, and complexes 2 and 3 show slow relaxation of the magnetization and single-molecule magnet (SMM) behavior under an applied direct-current field of 1000 Oe. Expand
