Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The molecular scale is increasingly being considered as a possible solution for the miniaturization of the components used in the construction of working devices. Molecule-based devices offer remarkable prospects for sensitivity and selectivity levels that cannot be reached with conventional solid-state materials. It is however necessary, to reproduce traditional electronic functions. This is issue is dedicated to different research topics from Synthesis to Solid State Physics, Nanotechnology and Theory of molecular materials based on Inorganic and Organometallic chemistry with specific focus on NanoElectronics, Spin Crossover Molecular Materials, Switchable Molecular Materials, Switchable nanoparticles, Molecular Magnetism, Photo-Magnetism, Thin films and Nano-Structures, Single Molecular Materials, Conducting Molecular Materials, Dielectric Properties, Spectroscopic techniques, Ultrafast spectroscopies, Structural studies, Phase transition phenomena, Statistical and Quantum Theories, bringing our knowledge towards new frontiers of materials science.
