Anisotropy barrier enhancement via ligand substitution in tetranuclear \{Co$^{\textrm{{III}}}$$_{\textrm{2}}$Ln$^{\textrm{{III}}}$$_{\textrm{2}}$\} single molecule magnets

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The replacement of coordinated acetylacetonate for nitrate around a {DyIII} ion results in the enhancement of the single molecule magnet properties of a \{{CoIII}2DyIII2\} complex, resulting in a large thermal energy barrier and reduced quantum tunnelling at low temperatures. The analogous {TbIII} complex displays f
