Product Description


In Electrons in Molecules, Launay and Verdaguer have provided us with a marvellous book reflecting their multidisciplinary knowledge of, contribution to, and perspective on current professional practice at the interface of physics, chemistry, and materials science (Gerald F. Thomas, American Journal of Physics)

The undeniable strength of this book is its interdisciplinary perspective ... This book is highly valuable for undergraduate and post-graduate students of chemistry, physics and materials science, and electrical engineering who want to get an initial but comprehensive overview of the most important aspects of molecular electronics (Robert Stadler, Angewandte Chemie)

the material is topical and the book is an interesting read (Andrew Benniston, Chemistry World)

Launay and Verdaguer's Electrons in Molecules will be useful for research workers entering fields such as electron transfer and photophysics and for chemists teaching final-year undergraduates in these fields. there is an excellent accessible discussion of hybrid molecular electronic electronics, including the recent development of devices based on nanotubes and graphene. (Elizabeth Page, The Times Higher Education Supplement)

About the Author

After studies at Ecole Normale Supérieure (ENS) de Saint-Cloud, Jean-Pierre Launay was Assistant Professor at Université Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris from 1967. His research was on the electrochemistry of polyoxoanions, and mixed valence systems. He was appointed Professor in 1983 and developed investigations on molecular electronics. In 1989, he moved to Toulouse, and led the "Centre for Materials Elaboration and Structural Studies", a CNRS laboratory, from 2003 to 2010. He has been a member of Institut Universitaire de France. He has also worked on molecular machines such as rotary motors and switching elements. He holds awards from the French Chemical Society and the French Academy of Sciences.

Following a career as a secondary school teacher and Assistant Professor at Ecole Normale Supérieure (ENS) de Saint-Cloud, Michel Verdaguer became Professor at the Université Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris in 1988. His research endeavours concentrate on molecular magnetism, in which field he has developed a rational approach to new systems, from quantum chemistry to applications (Haldane's gap, high spin molecules, room-temperature magnets, single molecule magnets). He developed synchrotron radiation studies in the field of molecular materials. He led the "Inorganic Chemistry and Molecular Materials Laboratory", associated to CNRS, from 1994 to 2001. He is presently engaged in the study of molecular multifunctional magnetic materials. He holds awards from the Spanish and French chemical societies and from the French Academy of Sciences.
