    • Abstract


      A selective review of some recent studies of the magnetic properties of compounds containing the spinS=1/2 copper(II) ion is presented. The emphasis lies with those compounds in which indirect exchange interactions are important. There is much variety. for there are dimers and clusters with either antiferromagnetic or ferromagnetic interactions, both uniform and alternating linear chains, two-dimensional or planar systems, and finally, some substances which exhibit predominantly three-dimensional interactions. In addition, recentab initio and model calculations of indirect (super-) exchange interactions, responsible for the observed magnetic behavior, are discussed.
