Organic metals

Abstract

The field of quasi-one-dimensional organic metals has emerged over the past decade as one of the most dynamic and fruitful areas of research. These new materials have most unusual properties and great technological potential. They provide a unique meeting ground for organic chemists, physical chemists and solid state physicists.
