Special Seminar: "Magnetic relaxation dynamics in dysprosium complexes" - Nicholas Chilton (Univ. of Manchester)

Event Date

172 Chemistry

Following our discovery of the first dysprosium metallocenium cation, [Dy(Cpttt)2][B(C6F5)4], which is the vanguard of the new generation of high-temperature single-molecule magnets, we have been investigating the magnetic relaxation dynamics of various dysprosium-based single-molecule magnets (SMMs) by experimental and theoretical techniques. Here we present our recent results in unravelling the competing magnetic relaxation processes.
