The study of the properties of transition metal compounds.

A general survey of possible chemical techniques was conducted and subsequently a detailed procedure was devised for the recovery of the mineral values present in manganese nodules making use of ion-exchange chromatography. The technique of the electron paramagnetic resonance supplemented by optical spectroscopy and nuclear magnetic resonance was studied to determine the magnetic properties of metal complexes that might prove important to the separation of the transition metals. The results of these studies were interpreted according to the ligand-field-theory model enabling considerable insight into the magnetic properties and structural nature of the metal chelates. These magnetic studies were carried mainly on the copper (II) ion and led to the discovery of a new class of one-dimensional magnetic materials.
