Novel Tailor-Made Externally Triggerable Single- Molecular Switches for Molecular Electronics
461 Seiten, Dissertation Universität Basel (2015), Softcover, A5
Molecular electronics marks a highly interdisciplinary scientific field, in which physicists, chemists, and biologist jointly investigate electronic phenomena on a molecular level. Herein, the foremost task of the chemist is the design and synthesis of novel, tailor-made model compounds bearing externally addressable or controllable functions, which are predominantly of electronic nature.
This present PhD thesis mainly focusses on the synthetic aspects towards innovative metalorganic coordination complexes, in particular those containing iron(II) species as the central metal ion. One of the very unique properties of iron(II) ions is their potential capability of switching their spin state between a low-spin and a high-spin form. It represents the general, overall target of this work to externally address and control these potential spin switching properties of the incorporated iron(II) centers and to, therefore, create molecular switching entities addressable on a single molecular level. On the pathway towards the ultimate miniaturization of electronic components such single molecular spin switching entities represent one of the inevitable key components.
