Part of the NATO Science Series book series (NAII, volume 139)


Recently, considerable efforts were done with the aim to design and to investigate new molecule-based materials involving interplay and synergy between multiple physical properties. This contribution emphasizes on materials combining magnetism and electrical behaviors. We will remind some fundamental background and constraints to design molecular materials with these physical properties and then we will discuss some examples to illustrate the achievements and the perspectives in this area. Three kinds of materials are presented, namely (DIETS)n(Et4N)(Cr(CN)6), [BDH- TTP][Cr(iso)2(NCS)4] and [Cu(hfac)2(TTF-py)2]. The former is based on -I…NC- interaction, the second is based on both π…π and S…S interactions and the last one is a coordination complex containing TTF units as ligands reflecting a covalent link between conducting and paramagnetic systems.
