Recently, much interests have been focused on new electronic functions of molecular materials. In view of the rapid advances in the fields of crystallography, recent progress in the field of material sciences is remarkable, especially in the case of molecular crystals with exotic functions, such as conducting and superconducting materials, molecular magnets, dielectric materials, supramolecular nanomaterials, etc.
The 21st IUCr Satellite Meeting “Molecular Crystals Exhibiting Exotic Functions” will be held in order for scientists who are studying in the fields of chemistry, physics , material sciences from all over the world to exchange informations and discuss the recently obtained results in their respective studies on molecular materials. This meeting will contribute to the progress in the study of molecular materials and structural sciences and also contribute to their mutual understandings and co-operations.
Session 1: Recent progress in molecular conductors・・・・・
  • Molecular superconductors, Magnetic organic conductors, Non-linear conductivity of molecular materials with charge ordering, Single-component molecular metal, Spin liquid, Organic FET,etc.
Session 2: Development of molecular magnets and molecular ferroelectrics・・・・・
  • Single molecule magnet, Magnetism of single nanoparticles, New ferroelectric compounds, etc.
Session 3: Studies on molecular materials using X-ray diffraction experiments・・・・・
  • Structural studies using synchrotron radiation, X-ray crystal structure determination based on powder diffraction, Structure determination of surfaces, Structure determination of superstructures,etc.
The Poster Session will also be held.
