Electrons in Molecules: From Basic Principles to Molecular Electronics

Jean-Pierre Launay and Michel Verdaguer


The book treats in a unified way electronic properties of molecules (magnetic, electrical, photophysical), culminating with the mastering of electrons, i.e. molecular electronics and spintronics and molecular machines. Chapter 1 recalls basic concepts. Chapter 2 describes the magnetic properties due to localized electrons. This includes phenomena such as spin cross-over, exchange interaction from dihydrogen to extended molecular magnetic systems, and magnetic anisotropy with single-molecule magnets. Chapter 3 is devoted to the electrical properties due to moving electrons. One considers first ... More

Keywords: Spin cross-over, exchange interaction, molecular magnets, mixed valence compounds, molecular conductors, photomagnetism, molecularelectronics, spintronics, molecular machines
