The project aims to provide a rational design for the synthesis of 4f homo- and 3d/4f heteronuclear systems and to prove their effectiveness in applications such as information storage, magnetic refrigeration, luminescent materials. The efforts will be focused on the following objectives: synthesis, spectroscopic and structural characterization of new molecular systems based on salicylaldehyde and its derivatives; evaluation of magnetic properties that allows the study of their behavior as nanomagnets (slow relaxation of the magnetization) and the magnetocaloric effect. The choice of the host organization - group from the Department of Inorganic Chemistry of the Faculty of Chemistry, University of Bucharest under guidance of Acad. Marius Andruh is dictated by its internationally recognition in design of original magnetic coordination compounds, expertise in molecular magnetism and use of crystal engineering strategies. The complementary applicant's (Dr. D. Dragancea) experience in synthetic coordination chemistry and characterization gained in the Laboratory of Coordination chemistry of the Institute of Chemistry in Chisinau, Moldova will assure the completion of project objectives. The fellowship provides the opportunity to use equipment and techniques that are not available at home institution, to gain a unique experience on the edge of several disciplines, establish scientific contacts. Altogether will positively impact her long-term career.
