Title Introduction to molecular magnetism : from transition metals to lanthanides / Cristiano Benelli and Dante Gatteschi
Published Weinheim, Germany : Wiley-VCH, [2015]


Description 1 online resource
Contents Electronic structures of free ions -- Electronic structure of coordinated ions -- Coordination chemistry and molecular magnetism -- Magnetism of ions -- Molecular orbital of isolated magnetic centers -- Toward the molecular ferromagnet -- Molecular orbital of coupled systems -- Structure and properties of p magnetic orbitals systems -- Structure and properties of coupled systems: d, f -- Dynamic properties -- SMM past and present -- Single ion magnet (SIM) -- SMM with lanthanides -- Single chain magnets (SCM) and more -- Magic dysprosium -- Molecular spintronics -- Hunting for quantum effects -- Controlling the growth -- ESR -- NMR -- Magnetic resonance imaging -- Some applications of MM
Summary This first introduction to the rapidly growing field of molecular magnetism is written with Masters and PhD students in mind, while postdocs and other newcomers will also find it an extremely useful guide. Adopting a clear didactic approach, the authors cover the fundamental concepts, providing many examples and give an overview of the most important techniques and key applications. Although the focus is one lanthanide ions, thus reflecting the current research in the field, the principles and the methods equally apply to other systems
