Stimuli-responsive crystalline compounds

Comments

Stimuli-responsive crystalline compounds are dynamic materials which respond to external solicitations such as electric, mechanical and thermal ones. They are extensively studied for their possible practical applications as molecular machines and switches, breathing porous frameworks for guest encapsulation and catalysis, or smart magnetic materials. The rational design of such compounds, endowed with desired physical properties, is a challenging task which involves both the synthesis of suitable building blocks assembled through crystal engineering, and mastering of molecular and supramolecular interactions in the solid state. This MS is open to all original research, both fundamental and applied, highlighting recent developments in this highly multidisciplinary field.
