Magnetism: Molecules to Materials IV

Front Cover
Joel S. Miller, Marc Drillon
John Wiley & Sons, 2001 - Science - 485 pages
Magnetic phenomena and materials are everywhere. Our understanding of magnetic behavior, once thought to be mature, has enjoyed new impetus from contributions ranging from molecular chemistry, materials chemistry and sciences to solid state physics. New phenomena are explored that open promising perspectives for commercial applications in future - carrying out chemical reactions in magnetic fields is just one of those. The spectrum spans molecule-based - organic, (bio)inorganic, and hybrid - compounds, metallic materials as well as their oxides forming thin films, nanoparticles, wires etc.
Reflecting contemporary knowledge, this open series of volumes provides a much-needed comprehensive overview of this growing interdisciplinary field. Topical reviews written by foremost scientists explain the trends and latest advances in a clear and detailed way. By maintaining the balance between theory and experiment, the book provides a guide for both advanced students and specialists to this research area. It will help evaluate their own experimental observations and serve as a basis for the design of new magnetic materials. A unique reference work, indispensable for everyone concerned with the phenomena of magnetism!

About the author (2001)

Joel S. Miller is a distinguished Professor of Chemistry at the University of Utah. He received his Ph D from the University of California, Los Angeles, and was a post-doctoral associate at Stanford University. After two decades of research at Industrial Laboratories, he joined the University of Utah in 1993. Professor Miller received the 2000 American Chemical Society Award for Chemistry of Materials for his discovery of organic-based magnets. His current research interests are the magnetic, electrical, and optical properties of molecule-based materials.

Marc Drillon has been director of research at CNRS since 1985. He is head of the Institute of Physics and Chemistry of Materials at University Louis Pasteur, Strasbourg. He is a member of various national committees and has received awards from CNRS, the French Chemical Society and the French Academy of Science.
His research interests in magnetic materials include the correlations between structure and properties, focusing more specifically on low dimensional architectures isolated in molecule-based or inorganic magnets. Over the last few years, Marc Drillon has been actively involved in the design and study of new hybrid organic-inorganic magnetic materials.
