Molecular Materials (Organic Conductors) 30 Years of Research in Portugal Luís Alcácer
How it all started NATO Summer School on Electron Spin Resonance Coimbra ca 1966 me
At UCR — in deep reflexion
Making Per2-Ni(mnt)2 for the first time
Serendipity = unanticipated truth Umberto ECO e.g.: The discovery of America by Christopher Colombus
Desperately trying to tune the ESR machine
The Chemistry Department of LFEN in the seventies
The Group in the early days: M.Almeida, L.Alcácer, R. Henriques, T.Leal(IST), H. Novais
F. Pedroso, H. Novais, L. Alcácer, R. Henriques, M. Almeida
With Jan Kommandeur
Watching the famous soccer match at Tomar (Sept 1979)
20 years later At the ICSM 2000 in BadGadstein
The Trophy, at ICSM 2002 in Shangai being passed to the Australian organizers being
Purification of perylene A Per2[Pt(mnt2)] crystal Ready to me measured
Measuring TEA-TCNQ (M.A)
L. Veiros The energy band “calculator”
The Polymer Electrolyte Brite Euram team getting the Ecus in Brussels
The single electron Mnt transistor! Why not?
