Design of Coordination Polymers Toward the On-Demand Control of Their Correlated Electrons/Spins and Chemical Reactions

We develop the subject of solid-state physical chemistry in coordination frameworks/polymers, in which our goal is to control synergistically electronic and magnetic properties of molecular frameworks and molecule/ion transports and molecular interactions in coordination space, and finally to create new molecular materials with unique phenomena. The techniques of crystal engineering and molecular self-assembling based on metal complexes enable us to create diverse molecular frameworks and supramolecular architectures. Many of metal complexes have such traits as high redox activity, high chargetransfer activity between metal ion and ligands, and paramagnetism with large anisotropy controllable by ligand-fields around metal ion chosen. ”Molecules” including metal complexes have the high design performance and flexibility in their type diversity, so it is our new challenge to manipulate on-demand electrons/spins and chemical interactions in multi-dimensional coordination frameworks.
