Single crystal EPR studies of VO(II)-doped cadmium potassium phosphate hexahydrate (CPPH) have been carried out at room temperature. The angular variation spectra in the three orthogonal planes indicate that the paramagnetic impurity has entered the lattice only substitutionally in place of Cd(II). Spin Hamiltonian parameters have been obtained from single crystal data. Powder spectra show a set of eight parallel and perpendicular features indicating the presence of only one site. The admixture coefficients have been calculated from the data, which agree well with the literature values.

Synthesis and room temperature single crystal EPR studies of a dinickel complex having an Ni2(μ-phenoxide)22+ unit supported by a macrocyclic ligand environment [Ni2(L)2(OClO3)2] [L = 2-[(4-methyl-pyridin-2-ylimino)-methyl]-phenol]
A bimetallic nickel(II) complex with the ligand Hsalamp (2-[(4-methyl-pyridin-2-ylimino)-methyl]-phenol), having the molecular formula, Ni2C26H22 N4O10Cl2, is synthesized and characterized by elemental, UV-Vis, IR and EPR studies. The IR spectrum confirms the presence of coordinated perchlorate ion and the UV-Vis. spectrum substantiates that the geometry around the metal ion is distorted square pyramidal. In the solvent methanol, the complex undergoes dissociation indicating the nature of the complex to be 1:2 electrolyte. The single crystal EPR studies indicate that the zero-field splitting is not large and the spectra can be observed even at room temperature, not so common for a nickel(II) ion. The spin Hamiltonian parameters calculated from single crystal rotations are:
