We have applied Monte Carlo simulation to study the magnetic behavior of a mixed spins \(S=\pm 5/2,\pm 3/2, \pm 1/2\) and \(\sigma =\pm 3/2,\pm 1/2\) Ising system of a nanographene layer, where the spins S alternate with the spins \(\sigma\) in two interpenetrating sublattices A and B, respectively. The Hamiltonian of the system contains an exchange interaction between nearest neighbors, a longitudinal magnetic field h, and a four-spin interaction \(J_4\). The antiferromagnetic and the ferromagnetic exchange interactions have been investigated. Interesting phenomena have been found. In particular, the system can exhibit a compensation temperature in the presence of h and \(J_4\).
