The analysis of the magnetic coupling and the magnetic anisotropy of localized 4f magnetic moments connected via organic ligands in molecular networks is a highly topical field of research owing to potential applications in organic spintronics. Our on-surface synthesis method allows us to synthesize sandwich-molecular nanowires that consist of alternating ring-like cyclooctatetraene (Cot) molecules and varying rare-earth ions as well as other phases of rare-earth-Cot compounds. The electronic and magnetic properties of these compounds were studied by XAS, XMCD and XLD accompanied by a theoretical approach based on multiplet calculations. The systems show, depending not only on the ligand, but also on the underlying substrate, varying magnetic coupling and magnetic anisotropies.
