A multifunctional helical lanthanide coordination polymer from a multiple collaborative work

Nice combination for circularly polarized luminescence, magnetism and magnetochirality!
A Multifunctional Helical Lanthanide Coordination Polymer from a Multiple Collaborative Work

Through a multi-site collaboration between experts of chirality, lanthanides and magnetism (OMC-ISCR, Rennes), theory (CTI-ISCR, Rennes), chiral separations (Chirosciences, Marseille), luminescence (ENS Lyon), CPL (ILL, Lyon), and magnetochirality (LNCMI, Grenoble), the first enantiopure helicene-ytterbium coordination polymer was prepared and displayed near-infrared circularly polarized luminescence (CPL), magnetism (SMM behavior), and magnetochiral circular dichroism (MChD).
