Conductive Materials Based on M(dmit)2 Complexes and Their Combination with Magnetic Complexes

  • Lydie Valade
  • Christophe Faulmann
Part of the Topics in Organometallic Chemistry book series (TOPORGAN, volume 27)


Metal complexes including the dmit2− (1,3-dithio-2-thione-4,5-dithiolato) ligand are the only class of metal bis-dithiolenes to give rise to superconductive molecular materials. This chapter first focuses on the description of these superconductive phases. Further sections describe the association of M(dmit)2 moieties with three types of magnetic molecules, i.e., metalloceniums, radical cations, and spin crossover complexes.
