High-frequency/high-field EPR spectroscopy of the high-spin ferrous ion in hexaaqua complexes.

Electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) at conventional magnetic fields and microwave frequencies, respectively, B0 < or = 1.5 T, nu < or = 35 GHz, has been widely applied to odd electron-number (S = 1/2) transition metal complexes. This technique is less successfully applied to high-spin systems that have even electron configurations, e.g. Fe2+ (S = 2). The… CONTINUE READING
