We focus our efforts on the design and synthesis of new molecular and extended systems with novel spin properties, long coherence times and an admixture of electronic and magnetic properties which will be used in the construction of functional nanodevices. The synthesis of new molecules involves a variety of bench techniques including the use of Schlenk-line and inert atmosphere dry box to carry out inorganic and organic synthesis, crystal growth and general manipulations and to gain experience in advanced experimental techniques in chemistry and physics. Characterization tools typically used are X-ray crystallography, electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy (EPR), electrochemistry, SQUID magnetometry, MALDI mass spectroscopy as well as others. Our brand-new laboratories are equipped with a UV-Vis spectrometer, electrochemistry kit, rotary evaporators, polarized microscope, Inert glovebox and a benchtop NMR spectrometer.
