Molecular spintronics paves the way to radically new device concepts, which might contribute to the redefinition of conventional spintronic applications, including sensing, information storage and processing. The field is interdisciplinary, spanning from device physics to synthetic chemistry to surface science and beyond. This Special Topic on Molecular Spintronics provides a valuable forum where scientists, engineers, and practitioners in the field share their most recent, novel findings on the control, manipulation and detection of the spin degree of freedom in molecules. Topics such as spin-polarized currents in molecular materials, organic/inorganic spinterfaces, electrical and optical manipulation of spins, and molecular spins for quantum technologies are included.
