Luminescent magnets light up the cover of ACS Inorganic Chemistry
10 February 2014
Recent work featuring Cardiff School of Chemistry (Dr Simon Pope) has been highlighted on the cover of the ACS journal Inorganic Chemistry.
A collaborative project between the Universities of Granada (Spain), Edinburgh and Cardiff has reported a series of bifunctional zinc-lanthanide bimetallic complexes that display field-induced single molecule magnet (SMM) behaviour and enhanced near-IR luminescence.
These species are rare examples of dual magnetic-luminescent materials.
