Singlet states are quantum states of vanishing angular momentum. When composing the angular momenta of two spin-j particles, there appears a unique singlet state, however, for an ensemble of N particles there exists a plethora of different types of singlets. We present a partial classification of them, and then focus on the permutationally invariant (PI) ones. Their basic properties and characterization is presented, and some specific PI singlets are studied for metrological applications. In particular, we calculate the maximal achievable accuracy when measuring the gradient of a magnetic field using these states. Moreover, we single out a measurement set-up that saturates the bound given by the quantum Fisher Information.
