Researchers from ICMAB (CSIC)/CIBER-BBN, in collaboration with others from the Universities of Liège, Mons, Grenoble-Alpes, Parma, Augsburg, Girona and CNR-IOM (SISSA), have published in the journal Nature (G. D'Avino et al., Nature, 547, E9-E10, 2017) an article where they question the presence of ferroelectricity at room temperature in organic transfer crystals generated by supramolecular techniques, which was previously published in the same journal (Tayi et al, Nature, 488, 485-489, 2012), by a team led by Profs. J. Fraser Stoddart (Nobel Prize for Chemistry 2016) and Samuel I. Stupp of the University of Northwestern.
