Electronics is based on the freedom of the charge of electron, while spintronics is based on the freedom of the charge and spin of the electron. Therefore, spintronics has several advantage compared with electronics. Usually spintronics consists of the conventional and inorganic magnets, while more recently the molecular magnets composed of the coordination compounds such as single-molecule magnets, spin crossover compounds, etc. have been investigated to develop the high information storages, spin-qubits for quantum computers, etc. To realize such systems, the spin-valve, giant-magnetoresistance (GMR), tunneling-magnetoresistance (TMR), OLED, magnetic tunneling hetero-junctions, etc. are very important. The typical coordination compounds consist of phthalocyanine, porphyrine, Alq3, POM, etc. Any other new compounds and new systems are welcome. In this session, we will focus on the molecular spintornics composed of the coordination compounds.
