Various present and future specialized applications of magnets require monodisperse, small magnetic particles, and the discovery of molecules that can function as nanoscale magnets was an important development in this regard. These molecules act as single-domain magnetic particles that, below their blocking temperature, exhibit magnetization hysteresis, a(More)
Magnetic anisotropy is the property that confers to the spin a preferred direction that could be not aligned with an external magnetic field. Molecules that exhibit a high degree of magnetic anisotropy can behave as individual nanomagnets in the absence of a magnetic field, due to their predisposition to maintain their inherent spin direction. Until now, it(More)
A multi- high-frequency electron paramagnetic resonance method is used to probe the magnetic excitations of a dimer of single-molecule magnets. The measured spectra display well-resolved quantum transitions involving coherent superposition states of both molecules. The behavior may be understood in terms of an isotropic superexchange coupling between pairs(More)
Two novel 1D coordination chains containing the curcuminoid (CCMoid) ligand 9Accm have been characterized: [Co II (9Accm) 2 (4,4´-bpy)] n (1) and [Ni II (9Accm) 2 (4,4´-bpy)] n (2). The two compounds were synthesized by solvothermal and microwave (MW) assisted techniques, respectively, and crystals of both systems were directly obtained from the mother(More)
Acknowledgement Ph.D. is not an individual accomplishment. This thesis would not be possible to be accomplished without the contribution of the following people. First and foremost, I would like to express sincere thanks to my supervisor and friend, Dr. José Giner Planas. Without his trust and unconditional help and support on research and also on personal(More)
