Magnetic anisotropy is the key element in the construction of single-ion magnets, a kind of nanomagnets for high-density information storage. This works describes an unusual large easy-plane magnetic anisotropy (with a zero-field splitting parameter D of +40.2 cm−1), mainly arising from the second-order spin-orbit coupling effect in a trigonal-planar CoIIcomplex [Li(THF)4][Co(NPh2)3], revealed by combined studies of magnetism, high frequency/field electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy, and ab initio calculations. Meanwhile, the field-induced slow magnetic relaxation in this complex was mainly attributed to the Raman process.
