DOI: 10.1039/C6CC01251E, Feature Article
With significant development in the computational methods applied to open-shell systems and tremendous improvements in computing resources, molecular modelling has become an integral part of the study of molecular magnetism. In this feature study, we have attempted to provide a bird's-eye view of the modelling of various spin Hamiltonian parameters of molecular nanomagnets.
