Molecular Materials
This group prepares and studies new molecular solids, with a focus on aspects that may lead to useful molecular-materials applications. Within a more general study of preparation, characterization and internal structure, we seek out molecular solids that can undergo non-destructive transformations, as a means of preparing solids that cannot be prepared any other way and in order to add a further dimension — switchability — to the properties of the solid.

The study of molecular materials extends the long-established field of materials development into the realm of molecular solids. The basic building blocks of molecular solids are covalently bonded fragments in either discrete form (zero-D) with only non-covalent interactions with their surroundings, or in covalently bound 1D, 2D or 3D polymeric assemblies.

Molecular materials have attractive potential advantages that include light weight, low cost, low density, flexibility and tunability, among others. The most important fundamental advantage is that all of the properties of molecular materials can in principle be modified through adjustments to the chemical composition of the basic building block of the material.

Larry Falvello is Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Zaragoza and is a member of the Aragón Nanoscience and Materials Institute, INMA (Instituto de Nanociencia y Materiales de Aragón).
