School Seminar hosted by Prof. Roy L. Johnston

In transition metal cluster chemistry, we typically identify two distinct classes of compound – ‘covalent’ and ‘exchange coupled’. The former are typically organometallic while the latter are well known, for example, in the field of single molecule magnets. But are there cases which fall between these two traditional classifications, and if so what properties might they have? In this seminar I will present a survey of the periodic table, showing how electrons on the cusp of delocalisation can influence structural, magnetic and electron transport properties of clusters.
