Framework-structured weak ferromagnets

Abstract

Framework-structured weak ferromagnets are new rising stars in molecule-based magnetic materials. The framework structures are powerful carriers for long-range ordering of spins. And weak ferromagnetism due to spin canting is an effective approach for magnets because of its frequent occurrence and desired spontaneous magnetization as long as the canting angle γ is large enough. In this critical review, we provide an overview of the various framework-structured weak ferromagnets based on different grades of ligands (from mono-atom to three-atom-like ligands). Particular emphasis is given to the relationships between structural features and the properties, rational employment of the ligands, and weak ferromagnetic strategies for molecule-based magnets with exciting properties and applications (273 references).
