Chemists studying an iron nitride complex known for its ability to transfer nitrogen atoms to organic substrates have discovered that the complex can also be used to partially transfer nitrogen to another metal complex. Besides adding a new dimension to metal nitride chemistry, the resulting nitride-bridged bimetallic complex can function as a single-molecule magnet (Inorg. Chem. 2015, DOI: 10.1021/acs.inorgchem.5b01455). Single-molecule magnets, or . . .
