Robertson, C. M.; Myles, D. J. T.; Leitch, A. A.; Reed, R. W.; Dooley, B. M.; Frank, N. L.; Dube, P. A.; Thompson, L. K.; and Oakley,* R. T. Ferromagnetism in a Heavy Atom Heterocyclic Conductor J. Am. Chem. Soc. 2007 129, 12688-12689 (OCT 24 2007). DOI: 10.1021/ja076841o


Magnetoconducting materials are important for development of organic spintronics, in which correlated spins may be utilized as both charge and spin carriers. Noncovalent interactions in the solid state in a pi-stacked bisthiaselenazolyl radical gives rise to a conductivity at 300 K of 1 x 10(-4) S cm(-1) and magnetic ordering with a T (c) of 12.3 K and a coercive field H (c) of 590 Oe at 2 K.
