Electro-Active Materials

molecular electronics / energy storage

In the recent years, we have initiated a new research axis, which consists in integrating our electronically-active switches into 3D-molecular materials or into hybrid materials.

Although this curiosity-driven research is a primarily of fundamental, we target materials that could be of interest in actual strategic fields such as :  energy storage or molecular electronics

Electro-Active Molecules

redox switches

The Molecular Magnetic Switches that we have been investigated in the last years turn out to be also very interesting redox switches:

Many interesting chemical or physical properties may arise from their outstanding "redox flexibility". Here-below is an example of a Fe4-Fe4 cubic switch where the LMCT, MLCT and MMCT can be switched ON&OFF by varying the potential, leading to a remarkable electrochromic properties
