Abstract

The development of multifunctional coordination solids represents one of the foremost challenges in the field of advanced materials as their properties underpin the next generation of technologically useful devices. Using a highly targeted theoretical and experimental approach for crystal engineering, this project aims to generate coordination solids that integrate radicals as molecular components for charge transfer. At a fundamental level these materials will offer unprecedented insights into charge delocalisation and radical-induced switching phenomena in three-dimensional coordination space. It is expected that the outcomes of the project will spur the development of devices for applicat..
