Multifunctional Single-Molecule Magnets (SMMs) or Single-Ion Magnets (SIMs) are intriguing molecule-based materials presenting an association of the slow magnetic relaxation with other physical properties. In this article, we present an example of a very simple molecule based on Dy3+ ion exhibiting a field induced SIM property and a characteristic Dy3+ based emission. The [Dy(NO3)3(H2O)4]·2H2O (1) complex is characterized by the means of single crystal X-Ray diffraction and their magnetic and photo-luminescent properties are investigated. We demonstrate here that it is possible to correlate the magnetic and luminescent properties and to obtain the Orbach barrier from the low temperature emission spectra, which is often difficult to properly extract from the magnetic measurements, especially in the case of field induced SIMs. View Full-Text
