Cluster Chemistry

Welcome to the website of  Prof. Dr. Annie K. Powell's research unit 'Cluster Chemistry' at the Institute of Nanotechnology (INT) at the Karlsruher Institute of Technology (KIT).  

Inorganic cluster chemistry concerns the synthesis and structural characterization of molecular cluster compounds and 2D, 3D framework structures of transition metals and rare earth elements in order to use them in nanoscopic devices.

Self-Assembly of a Giant Tetrahedral 3 d–4 f Single-Molecule Magnet within a Polyoxometalate System

Record SMM POM: A giant tetrahedral heterometallic polyoxometalate (POM)-based single molecule magnet has been synthesized and characterized.This nanocluster contains the largest number of 4f ions of any POM reported to date and is the first to incorporate two different 3d–4f and 4f coordination cluster assemblies within same POM framework.

Unraveling the Influence of Lanthanide Ions on Intra and Inter-Molecular Electronic Processes in Fe10Ln10 Nano-Toruses

Advancing the current understanding of molecular spintronics, we use femtosecond absorption spectroscopy to show that the intramolecular electronic channels follow a three-step process.
