Devices and desires: The self-assembly of single-molecule-magnet (SMM) carbon-nanotube (CNT) hybrids (see picture) in conditions compatible to the creation of electronic devices is described. The process is controlled at the single-molecule level, and the resulting CNT–field-effect transistors display single-SMM sensitivity at room temperature.
