A molecular switchable iron material

What is it about?

This paper reports a new temperature switchable iron material where the structure of the material is closely related to its magnetic properties.

Why is it important?

Structure:function relationships are often difficult to define. The discovery of this new material suggests workable molecular based materials can be prepared within the next decade. This particular material could have uses in molecular computing.
