Water of crystallization: A novel method named “solution epitaxy” for the growth of 2D crystals of organic semiconductors (2DCOS) is based on the self-assemble micrometer-sized 2DCOS on water surface, and then epitaxial growth of them into centimeter sized 2DCOS with thickness of several molecular layers.

The charge transport properties of SCO [Fe(Htrz)2(trz)](BF4) NPs covered with a silica shell placed in between single-layer graphene electrodes are reported. A reproducible thermal hysteresis loop in the conductance above room-temperature is evidenced. This bistability combined with the versatility of graphene represents a promising scenario for a variety of technological applications but also for future sophisticated fundamental studies.

Acene from a condensation: Four different bent benzo[a]naphtho[2,3-i]phenazines are efficiently synthesized by condensation of aromatic diamines with 1,2-naphthalenedione. The resultant azaacenes are spectroscopically and crystallographically characterized. Optical properties are studied and compared with those of the isomeric linear azaacenes.
