Abstract : The discovery of conducting organic compounds was the first example of organic materials possessing metallic properties. More recently there has been a growing interest in organic compounds which may possess a different metallic property, ferromagnetism. The development of organic ferromagnets has both scientific interest and a strong technological impetus. Anticipated applications for organic ferromagnets include: sensors-(thermal or optical), magnetic thin films, magnetic affinity chromatography, magnetic shielding, and storage media (such as that used in computers). In addition to such technical applications, the study of organoferromagnetics will lead to the development of synthetic methods for new materials, the discovery of unknown properties and the development of low-dimensional magnets. This final Technical Report prepared for, and in accordance with the guidelines set forth by the Office of Naval Technology, summarizes the research conducted in the field of Organoferromagnetics sponsored by ONT and the Naval Research Laboratories.
