MnII(TCNE)3/2(I3)1/2-A 3D network-structured organic-based magnet and comparison to a 2-D analog
Organic-based magnets utilize unpaired electrons residing on organic species to form magnetically ordered materials. Unlike traditional atom/ion-based magnets, they enable the controllable modulation and combination of magnetic properties with other technologically important properties (e.g., electrical and optical) via synthetic methodologies pervasive to organic chemistry.[i] Most intriguing are several room temperature magnets, but their understanding and exploitation has been thwarted by their amorphous nature.
