Abstract

We investigate the spin polarization of a multiple-decked sandwich cluster, viz., Mn(C6H6)n+1. As a first step, we consider Mn(C6H6)n+1 clusters with n = 1 and M = Mn, Fe, Co. Based on the density functional theory, we find an increase in the magnetic moment of the benzene clusters, and a decrease in the magnetic moment of M in the M(C6H6)2 systems. From increased magnetic moment of benzenes, we find a way to inject spin to benzenes through 2pz orbitals. © 2004 The Physical Society of Japan.
