Electrons in Molecules: From Basic Principles to Molecular Electronics

Jean-Pierre Launay and Michel Verdaguer


This book treats in a unified way electronic properties of molecules (magnetic, electrical, photophysical), culminating with the mastering of electrons: molecular electronics. Chapter 1 reviews basic concepts. Chapter 2 describes the magnetic properties due to localized electrons. This includes phenomena such as spin crossover, exchange interaction from dihydrogen to extended molecular magnetic systems, and magnetic anisotropy with single-molecule magnets. Chapter 3 is devoted to electrical properties due to moving electrons, first considering electron transfer in discrete molecular systems — ... More

Keywords: spin crossover, exchange interaction, molecular magnets, mixed valence compounds, molecular conductors, photomagnetism, molecular electronics, molecular devices, electronic properties of molecules, molecular magnetism and spintronics
