About the ICMM


The International Conference on Molecule-based Magnets (ICMM) is the largest international conference on the research field of “Molecular Magnetism”. This meeting focuses on the magnetism of molecules and molecular-based materials, i.e. the design, synthesis and evaluation of artificial spin systems composed of organic radicals, transition metal complexes, and composite materials. This “field” of research has grown tremendously over the past two decades and is an enormously interdisciplinary endeavour. In keeping with tradition,this meeting will cover a diverse range of topics including (but not limited to): synthesis of magnetic molecules and materials; magnetic properties of organic radicals, coordination complexes, metal-radical systems; nanomagnetism; multi-property magnetic materials; theoretical approaches.
