Release Date: January 17, 2017
A comprehensive overview of this rapidly expanding interdisciplinary field of research.
After a short introduction to the basics of magnetism and molecular magnetism, the text goes on to cover specific properties of molecular magnetic materials as well as their current and future applications. Design strategies for acquiring molecular magnetic materials with desired physical properties are discussed, as are such multifunctional materials as high Tc magnets, chiral and luminescent magnets, magnetic sponges as well as photo- and piezo-switching magnets.
The result is an excellent resource for materials scientists, chemists, physicists and crystal engineers either entering or already working in the field.
