Synthesis and characterization of sterically and electronically tuned ligands toward magnetic control of iron and cobalt complexes
Presented within this dissertation are the syntheses and characterizations of iron and cobalt complexes featuring ligands designed to tune the magnetic properties. Two key magnetic phenomena are of interest: spin crossover and single-molecule magnetism. Both of these topics are known to be significantly influenced by subtle changes in coordination and inter- and intramolecular interactions. The overarching goal is to understand how the magnetic properties of the metal center can be controlled via electronic and steric modifications. In Chapter 1, I offer a brief introduction into the background ...
