Abstract: Angular-resolved single-crystal
magnetometry is a key tool to characterise
lanthanide-based materials
with low symmetry, for which conjectures
based on idealised geometries
can be totally misleading. Unfortunately
the technique is strictly successful
only for triclinic structures, thus reducing
significantly its application. By collecting
out-of-equilibrium magnetisation
data the technique was extended
to the orthorhombic organometallic
Cp*ErCOT single-molecule magnet
(SMM), thus allowing for the first time
the reconstruction of the molecular
anisotropy tensor notwithstanding the
two molecular orientations in the crystal
lattice. The results, flanked by stateof-
the-art ab initio calculations, confirmed
the expected orientation of the
molecular easy axis of magnetisation
and thus validated the synthetic strategy
based on organometallic complexes
of a single lanthanide ion.
