Mixed Valence Compounds: Potential Applications in Materials and Molecular Electronics

  • Jean-Pierre Launay
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 168)


Mixed valence compounds have been known for a long time, but their rediscovery twenty years ago was motivated by their original physicochemical properties1. As a matter of fact, their electronic structure shows the presence of quasi degenerate ground states differing by the localization of one or more electrons. Thus thermal as well as optical electron transfer is a fundamental property of these compounds.
