Intramolecular spin alignment in photomagnetic molecular devices: a theoretical study.

Ground- and excited-state magnetic properties of recently characterized pi-conjugated photomagnetic organic molecules are analyzed by the means of density functional theory (DFT). The systems under investigation are made up of an anthracene (An) unit primarily acting as a photosensitizer (P), one or two iminonitroxyl (IN) or oxoverdazyl (OV) stable organic… CONTINUE READING
