    Molecular {Cr7Ni} rings have shown several ideal features for the observation of quantum phenomena and they appear suitable candidates for qubits encoding at low temperatures. We have exploited different functionalization pathways to graft molecular {Cr7Ni} rings onto a Au(111) surface from the liquid phase and here we report a comparative analysis of the results obtained by STM, XPS, XAS and XMCD experimental techniques. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2010.
