Our session entitled “Recent Advances in Molecular Conductors: Materials Development” is coupled with “Recent Advances in Molecular Conductors: Functionality” organized by Dr. Reizo Kato (RIKEN) et al., so we sincerely hope that these sessions will be held in a consecutive manner.
Our session aims to bring together chemists investigating the development of new molecular materials, such as organic charge-transfer salts and metal complexes, with exciting physical properties. To build on recent advances in constructing organic functional materials, material systems of interest include molecular-based magnetic conductors, semiconductors for thin film devices such as field-effect transistors and photovoltaic cells, dielectric compounds, and redox compounds for rechargeable batteries. The session will provide great opportunity for device engineers and physicists as well as organic, physical, and materials chemists to meet and discuss ideas, solutions, and future issues relating to the scientific study and technical implementation of organic functional materials.
