Molecular Nanomagnets Synopsis

Nanomagnetism is a rapidly expanding area of research which appears to be able to provide novel applications. Magnetic molecules are at the very bottom of the possible size of nanomagnets and they provide a unique opportunity to observe the coexistence of classical and quantum properties. The discovery in the early 90's that a cluster comprising twelve manganese ions shows hysteresis of molecular origin, and later proved evidence of quantum effects, opened a new research area which is still flourishing through the collaboration of chemists and physicists. This book is the first attempt to cover in detail the new area of molecular nanomagnetism, for which no other book is available. In fact research and review articles, and book chapters are the only tools available for newcomers and the experts in the field. It is written by the chemists originators and by a theorist who has been one of the protagonists of the development of the field, and is explicitly addressed to an audience of chemists and physicists, aiming to use a language suitable for the two communities.

Molecular Nanomagnets Press Reviews

Written by the chemist originators as well as by a theorist who has been one of the protagonists of the development of the field, this book is explicitly addressed to an audience of chemists and physicists and aims to use a language suitable for the two communities. * Lab Plus International * The book can be strongly recommended. It succeeds in bridging the gap between the many different facets of chemistry and physics. The subject is sure to gain in importance in the coming years * Angewandte Chemie *
