Single-ion magnet behaviour in U(Tp(Me2))(2)I

[U(TpMe2)2I] exhibits at low temperatures single molecule magnet (SMM) behaviour comparable to its bipyridine derivative and related single ion U(iii) complexes recently reported as SMMs. The trend of variation of the energy barrier for the magnetic relaxation in these compounds is well reproduced by quantum chemistry calculations. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2012.
