Abstract

MMX-Type quasi-one-dimensional iodide-bridged diplatinum complexes (MMX chains) provide various electronic states and attractive physical properties. In this review, we summarize the recent progress in MMX chains consisting of pyrophosphite (pop) ligands. The MMX chains with binary countercations, which have short PtIPt distance and robust frameworks, form a new electronic state. They show reversible dehydrationrehydration accompanied by the change of electronic states and electrical conductivity. Relatively high electrical conductivity in the MMX chains with binary countercations enables us to investigate the negative differential resistance (NDR) and electrochemical characteristics in the solid state for the first time in MMX chains.
