The First Near-Linear Bis(Amide) f-block Complex: A Blueprint for a High Temperature Single Molecule Magnet

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We report the first near-linear bis(amide) 4f-block compound and show that this novel structure, if implemented with dysprosium(III), would have unprecedented single molecule magnet (SMM) properties with an energy barrier, Ueff, for reorientation of magnetization of 1800 cm???1.
