What layered iron compounds can offer, and more ...

I will introduce recently-found 2D inorganic compounds based on layers of Fe2+ (S=2) ions, in order to highlight how they form a unique platform for new paradigms on spin-dynamics and magneto-dielectric couplings. Here, depending on the crystal structure, the spin-degrees of freedoms and fine anionic compositions are the key-ingredients to tune the exchanges, crystal field, etc.
