Heterometallic 3d–4f single-molecule magnets


The promising potential applications, such as information processing and storage or molecular spintronics, of single-molecule magnets (SMMs) have spurred on the research of new, better SMMs. In this context, lanthanide ions have been seen as ideal candidates for new heterometallic transition metal–lanthanide SMMs. This perspective reviews 3d–4f SMMs up to 2014 and highlights the most significant advances and challenges of the field.
