"Half-sandwich" Yb(III) single-ion magnets with metallacrowns.
The first "half-sandwich" Yb(III) single-ion magnets (SIMs) based on [12-MCZn(ii)-4] are reported, in which the central ytterbium ion is coordinated by YbO8 geometry in D4d symmetry. The anisotropicExpand

Two 3d-4f nanomagnets formed via a two-step in situ reaction of picolinaldehyde.
Two 3d-4f nanomagnets, [Dy(III)2Cu(II)7] (1) and [Gd(III)6Cu(II)12] (2), are synthesized under a two-step in situ reaction of picolinaldehyde. Not only the final adduct (hemiacetal), but also theExpand
