38_03/1999The cover picture shows the X-ray crystal structure of [Co2IIL(NCS)2(SCN)2] (L is a Schiff-base macrocyclic ligand) superimposed on a graph of the magnetic moment and susceptibility of this complex as a function of temperature. The graph reveals the presence of a weak antiferromagnetic exchange between the cobalt ions as well as a spin transition. This is the first observation of both these features for a cobalt complex, and is a promising step towards the development of nanoswitches. Further details are reported by S. Brooker et al. on pages 408–410. The cover image was generated by M. Crawford (Department of Chemistry. University of Otago) with Strata Studio Pro (Strata).
