To manifest single-molecule magnet (SMM) behaviour a polynuclear complex should have a high-spin ground-state and strong negative anisotropy (D).
Objective: "Coordination Chemistry and Molecular Magnetism are in an ideal position for the rational design of Single-Molecule Magnets which can be used as molecular spin qubits, the irreducible components of any quantum technology.
Among the topics are inorganic nanotubes and fullerene-like nanoparticles, harnessing biological motors to engineer systems for nanoscale transport and assembly, molecular spintronics using single-molecule magnets, semiconductor quantum light sources, the potential and challenges of nanopore sequencing, and biosensing with plasmonic nanosensors.
