Research

My research is focused on the synthesis and characterization of new 4d and 5d cyanometallate complexes as building blocks for high-temperature nanomolecular magnets. The 4d and 5d metals have significantly larger spin-orbit coupling constants and exhibit anisotropic exchange when coupled to other metals through the cyanide bridge in polynuclear systems.
