Abstract

Molecular magnetism, though distinctly a field within chemistry, encompasses much more than synthesis and has strong links with other disciplines across the physical sciences. Research goals in this area are currently dominated by magnetic memory and quantum information processing but extend in other directions toward medical diagnostics and catalysis. This review focuses on two popular subtopics, single-molecule magnetism and molecular spin qubits, outlining their design and study and some of the latest outstanding results in the field. The above topics are complemented by an overview of pertinent electronic structure methods and, in a look towards the future, an overview of the state of the art in measurement and modeling of molecular spin–phonon coupling.
