The Metallofullerene Field-Induced Single-Ion Magnet HoSc2N@C-80

The low-temperature magnetic properties of the endohedral metallofullerene HoSc2N@C-80 have been studied by superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) magnetometry. Alternating current (ac) susceptibility measurements reveal that this molecule exhibits slow relaxation of magnetization in a small applied field with timescales in the order of milliseconds. The equilibrium magnetic properties of HoSc2N@C-80 indicate strong magnetic anisotropy. The large differences in magnetization relaxation times between the present compound and the previously investigated DySc2N@C-80 are discussed.
