This perspective review shows how the coordination chemistry approach to magnetic wires based on dinuclear copper(II) complexes with rodlike aromatic oligomers (RAOs) as extended π-conjugated spacers can be extended to the design and synthesis of a novel class of metallo-carbon nanostructures (MCNs) with polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) as illustrative examples of advanced magnetic nanodevices for single-molecule spintronics and quantum computing nanotechnologies. In this pursuit, two opposite but complementary ways have been explored: (i) the preparation of synthetic models through the skillful organic synthesis of tailor-made diamine-functionalized RAOs and PAHs as bridging ligands for experimental investigation of their single-molecule electron exchange (EE) and electron transport (ET) or quantum interference (QI) and quantum coherence (QC) properties, or (ii) their theoretical prediction with the aid of first-principle density functional (DFT) and time-dependent density functional (TDDFT) theories on appropriate models from chemists’ creative imagination.

Abstract

This perspective review shows how the coordination chemistry approach to magnetic wires based on dinuclear copper(II) complexes with rodlike aromatic oligomers (RAOs) as extended π-conjugated spacers can be extended to the design and synthesis of a novel class of metallo-carbon nanostructures (MCNs) with polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) as illustrative examples of advanced magnetic nanodevices for single-molecule spintronics and quantum computing nanotechnologies. In this pursuit, two opposite but complementary ways have been explored: (i) the preparation of synthetic models through the skillful organic synthesis of tailor-made diamine-functionalized RAOs and PAHs as bridging ligands for experimental investigation of their single-molecule electron exchange (EE) and electron transport (ET) or quantum interference (QI) and quantum coherence (QC) properties, or (ii) their theoretical prediction with the aid of first-principle density functional (DFT) and time-dependent density functional (TDDFT) theories on appropriate models from chemists’ creative imagination.
