A new challenge in the field of molecular magnetism is the design of optically and thermally switchable solid state magnetic materials for which various kinds of application may be feasible. Our research activities involve preparative methods, the study of the physical properties and associated mechanisms, as well as the exploration of further possibilities.
Particular focus is on heterobimetallic Prussian Blue analogs, such as on RbMn[Fe(CN)6], in which the interplay between the two different adjacent metal ions is crucial for the observation of photo-induced phenomena. Our studies revealed that modification of the preparative conditions lead to differences in structural features that allowed tuning of the magnetic and electron transfer properties of RbxMn[Fe(CN)6]y.zH2O.
