Single Molecule Magnets (SMMs) are among the most promising molecular systems for the development of novel molecular electronics based on the spin transport. However, the development of a SMM-based technology is hampered by the intrinsic chemical fragility of most polynuclear SMMs and the evanescence of the SMM behaviour, which make the retention of the molecular magnetic bistability at the nanoscale far from trivial. Another issue related to...

The fast, widespread and reliable monitoring of carcinogenic compounds at very low concentrations in air constitutes a mandatory goal for environmental and health organizations and a major challenge for the chemical community. Multidisciplinary, innovative solutions are required to overcome the present limits, particularly in benzene detection. The supramolecular approach to analytical sampling materials can be seen as a noteworthy improvement...
