Organometallic single-molecule magnet: Studies of two dimeric organometallic dysprosium compounds reveal one to be the first organometallic single-molecule magnet (see picture). A comparison of the magnetic properties and electronic structures of the two compounds shows that Dy⋅⋅⋅Dy interactions have a profound influence on the dynamic magnetic behaviour, while having little effect on the static magnetic measurements.
