Santokh Singh Tandon obtained his Ph.D. degree in October 1979. He worked in Kent State University, Salem Campus, Ohio, USA, as an Assistant Professor from August 2004 to August 2009 and as an Associate Professor from August 2009 to present (tenured). Tandon is involved in research and undergraduate/graduate teaching activities in different universities in USA, Canada, New Zealand, France, England, and India (since August 1978). He is the recipient of some awards like the Visiting Scientist Award by Memorial University, St. John’s, NL, Canada, during summer breaks (2012, 2009, 2006, 2000, and 1997); the Faculty Excellence Provost Award in 2008; and the Faculty Excellence Dean Discovery Award in 2008. Tandon served as a reviewer for Chemical Communications, Inorganic Chemistry, Dalton Transactions, and other journals. He is also a Member of the American Chemical Society. His present research interests involve the design, synthesis, structural characterization, and magnetostructural relationships of spin-coupled coordination compounds of paramagnetic transition metals and lanthanides with potential applications as single-molecule magnets (SMMs) and single-chain magnets (SCMs). In majority of the polymeric clusters, multidentate ligands in conjunction with doubly or triply bridging anions like N3-, NCS-, N(CN)2-, CN-, C2H3O2-, C6H5O-, OH-, and so forth are often used to form extended networks.
