  • Publication number: 20220306666
    Abstract: An organic metal complex represented by formula (1) and having a ligand represented by formula (2). MLmL?nL?l??(1) In formula (1), M represents a transition metal, and Lm, L?n, and L?l represent ligands different from each other. In formula (2), R11 to R14 are each independently selected from the group consisting of a hydrogen atom and a substituent. X is selected from the group consisting of CRR?, SiRR?, S, SO, and SO2. Y1 to Y6 are each independently selected from the group consisting of a carbon atom and a nitrogen atom. When Y3 to Y6 are carbon atoms, each of the carbon atoms may be bound to a carbon atom adjacent to the carbon atom to form a ring structure.

  • Patent number: 10147540
    Abstract: In a planar coil element and a method for producing the same, a metal magnetic powder-containing resin containing an oblate or needle-like first metal magnetic powder contains a second metal magnetic powder having an average particle size (1 ?m) smaller than that (32 ?m) of the first metal magnetic powder, which significantly reduces the viscosity of the metal magnetic powder-containing resin. Therefore, the metal magnetic powder-containing resin is easy to handle when applied to enclose a coil unit, which makes it easy to produce the planar coil element.
