Oxalate-ligand based two-dimensional bimetallic molecular materials of general formula A[M(II)M(III)
(C2O4)3] have drawn much research interest in the field of molecular magnetism. In this article, these materials and their
magnetic properties have been introduced. The heat capacity calorimetric studies on these magnetic materials reported so
far have been revisited to highlight the scope of application as well as the importance of the thermodynamic technique -
heat capacity calorimetry in the field of molecular magnetism.
Keywords: 2D-magnets, bimetallic complexes, compensation phenomenon, heat capacity calorimetry, lattice dimensionality,
magnetic transitions, molecular magnetism, oxalate ligand, spin glass, structural transition.
