Lanthanides And Actinides In Molecular Magnetism.pdf
The first reference on this rapidly growing topic provides an essential up-to-date guide to current and emerging trends. A group of international experts has been carefully selected by the editors to cover all the central aspects, with a focus on molecular species while also including industrial applications. The resulting unique overview is a must-have for researchers, both in academia and industry, who are entering or already working in the field.
Richard Layfield is Lecturer in Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Manchester, UK. He obtained his undergraduate degree in Chemistry at the University of Leeds, UK, and his PhD in Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Cambridge, UK. He has received several awards, including the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation Fellowship for Experienced Researchers and Royal Society of Chemistry Meldola Medal and Prize. Muralee Murugesu is Assistant Professor at the University of Ottawa, Canada. He studied Chemistry at the University of Paris 7 Jussieu, France. Afterwards he obtained his MSc in Chemistry at the University of East Anglia, UK, and PhD in Chemistry at the University of Karslruhe, Germany. His first postdoctoral appointment was at University of Florida with Prof. George Christou, followed by a postdoctoral position working jointly between the University of California, Berkeley and the University of California, San Francisco under the supervision of Prof. Jeff Long and the Nobel Laureate Prof. Stanley Prusiner.
