I am an REU student for the summer working with Xuan Zhang. My project is to synthesize mixed valence dinuclear species of transition metals capped with pentadentate ligands and bridged with organocyanide bridging ligands. Once these compounds have been synthesized we will characterize them via cyclic voltammetry, infrared spectroscopy, and mass spectrometry. We will analyze their magnetic properties using EPR and SQUID techniques. These compounds have potential applications as molecular magnets which could one day lead to quantum computing.
