Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

A novel method for enhancing the ESR spin intensity by crystal grinding is proposed. Spin enhancement is observed for the mortar-ground powder of the coordination polymer crystal {[CuI(TANC)I]}n. The spin intensity enhancement is likely due to the increased formation of spin-active species that are formed from crystal defects and crystal transformation, as shown on p. 2561 by M. Tadokoro et al. Ms. Heulwen Price is kindly acknowledged for designing the cover image.
