Abstract

I discuss here the contribution from J. S. Miller and co-workers concerning the discovery of ferromagnetism in an organometallic compound. The important peculiarities around this discovery, that the moments from p-electrons participate in magnetic ordering, strongly contributed to open the area of molecule-based magnetic materials as a new area of research.
