Chemistry and Physics of Multifunctional Materials
Synthetic molecular level systems are becoming cleverer and cleverer. They can be designed to accept/donate electrons, react to external stimuli, change the relative positions of their component parts, undergo complex rearrangements and controlled intramolecular motions and generate changes in both macroscopic and molecular properties.
