      Abstract: Because of their remarkable and   unmatched optical and magnetic properties, the lanthanides are   under the limelight when it comes to high technology. These   elements are used in strategic applications such as optical   glasses and lasers, telecommunications, lighting and displays,   magnetic materials, hard-disk drives, security inks and   counterfeiting tags, catalysis, biosciences, and medicine, to   name but a few. Long considered as minor actors in   transition-metal chemistry, they have now gained respect from   coordination chemists who insert them into sophisticated   functional and polyfunctional molecules and materials.
