The purpose of this book is to provide the reader with essential keys to a unified understanding of the rapidly expanding field of molecular materials and devices: electronic structures and bonding, magnetic, electrical and photo-physical properties, and the mastering of electrons in molecularelectronics.Chemists will discover how basic quantum concepts allow us to understand the relations between structures, electronic structures, and properties of molecular entities and assemblies, and to design new molecules and materials. Physicists and engineers will realize how the molecular world fits in withtheir need for systems flexible enough to check theories or provide original solutions to exciting new scientific and technological challenges. The non-specialist will find out how molecules behave in electronics at the most minute, sub-nanosize level. The comprehensive overview provided in this book is unique and will benefit undergraduate and graduate students in chemistry, materials science, and engineering, as well as researchers wanting a simple introduction to the world of molecular materials.
After studies at Ecole Normale Superieure (ENS) de Saint-Cloud, Jean-Pierre Launay was Assistant Professor at Universite Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris from 1967. His research was on the electrochemistry of polyoxoanions, and mixed valence systems. He was appointed Professor in 1983 and developed investigations on molecular electronics...
