Magnetic properties of oxygen physisorbed in Cu-trans-1,4-cyclohexanedicarboxylic acid having one-dimensional micropores are studied. O2 is well known as a magnetic molecule with S=1. In the case of the low adsorption, temperature dependence of the susceptibility shows the Schottky-type broad peak and the high-field magnetization process has a step at around 34T with saturation moment of 2 μB/O2. These results are interpreted by the dimer model of S=1/2 with an antiferromagnetic exchange interaction. Broadening of the step of magnetization with increasing the adsorption may be due to the interdimer interaction or the distribution of the intra-dimer exchange interaction. Linear magnetization process which is characteristic of one-dimensional Heisenberg antiferromagnet has not been observed even in the full pore region.
