An enantiopure FeIII4 single-molecule magnet

Author affiliations


A pair of enantiopure star-shaped FeIII4 clusters were constructed from simple chiral ligands. AC field frequency dependence and a hysteresis loop, which are very important features of SMMs, were observed. Circular dichroism (CD) spectra demonstrated that the chirality was successfully transferred from the ligand to the coordination environment of Fe3+ ions.
