Another dimension : investigations of molecular magnetism using muon-spin relaxation.

Lancaster, T. and Blundell, S.J. and Pratt, F.L. (2013) 'Another dimension : investigations of molecular magnetism using muon-spin relaxation.', Physica scripta., 88 (6).


We review examples of muon–spin relaxation measurements on molecule-based magnetic coordination polymers, classified by their magnetic dimensionality. These include the one-dimensional s = 1/2 spin chain Cu(pyz)(NO3)2 and the two-dimensional s = 1/2 layered material [Cu(HF2)(pyz)2]BF4. We also describe some of the more exotic ground states that may become accessible in the future given the ability to tune the interaction strengths of our materials through crystal engineering.
