Title: Peroxide-Templated Assembly of a Trimetal Neodymium Complex Single-Molecule Magnet

Abstract

In this study, we present a tri-metal neodymium complex with two notable qualities. Firstly, the assembly of the complex is templated by peroxide derived from atmospheric oxygen. Secondly, the bulk material behaves as a super-paramagnet, implying that the individual complexes are molecular magnets. The peroxide-templated assembly is possible due to the confluence of the high oxophilicity of neodymium along with the use of an azeotropic distillation synthesis method, which excludes water but admits oxygen. SQUID magnetometer measurements show an extremely high magnetic susceptibility as well as a lack of remanence.
