Design, Synthesis, and Characterization of Molecule-Based Magnets
The discovery of organic- and molecule-based magnets has led to several design criteria for their design and synthesis, and several families with magnetic ordering temperatures as high as ̃125°C have been reported. Examples of soft and hard magnets with coercivities as high at 27 kOe have also been reported. Examples from our laboratory of organic-based magnets using the tetracyanoethylene radical anion, [TCNE]·−, are discussed. In addition, several molecule-based magnets based on Prussian blue structured materials as well as ruthenium acetate are discussed.
