Magnetic ordering in self-assembled materials consisting of cerium(III) ions and the radical forms of 2,5-TCNQX2 (X=Cl, Br). Academic Article uri icon


  • Ribbon-like coordination polymers composed of Ce III ions and TCNQX 2 (TCNQ=tetracyanoquinodimethane; X=Cl, Br), but not TCNQ radicals, show unexpected magnetic ordering (see picture; Ce green). This behavior reveals remarkable subtlety for magnetic properties of lanthanide-organic materials. Copyright 2012 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.
