Ferrimagnetism in Homometallic Linear Chains: CuX2·4/3TMSO, X = Cl, Br
The development of ordered bimetallic chains is an exciting advance in coordination chemistry. The possibility of alternating transition metal ions of different magnetic moments leads to uncompensated moments and ferrimagnetic behavior. A review of these chains is presented elsewhere in this volume . We present here the first report of ferrimagnetism in homometallic compounds, where the ferrimagnetism arises from an odd number of metal ions within the unit cell.
