Hyper-Structured Molecules are topologically well-defined molecules in two or three dimensions, expected to show novel quantum effects in the molecular sequences. This book covers molecular designs of dendrimers, oligomers, hyperbranched polymers and/or high spin systems, molecular organizations and nanostructures, mesoscopic pattern formation, and scanning probe microscopy for characterization and molecular handling, aims at the fundamental understandings of how to design and synthesize and the future applications toward molecular electronics, photonics and spinics such as quantum effect devices. Hyper-structured Molecules III presents the frontier of novel molecules and techniques for handling them, and should be of interest to all researchers working in supramolecular chemistry or molecular electronics.
