Abstract

A triple-decker SYML-Dy2 single-molecule magnet (SMM) was synthetized and grafted onto the surface of iron oxide nanoparticles (IO-NPs) coated by an oleic acid monolayer. The magnetism of the SYML-Dy2 complex, and the hybrid system, NP-Dy2, were studied by a superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID). Density functional theory (DFT) calculations were carried out to study both the energetics of the interaction between SYML-Dy2 complex to the organic capping, and the assembly presented by the oleic acid chains.
