Diisopropylammonium chloride: a ferroelectric organic salt with a high phase transition temperature and practical utilization level of spontaneous polarization

Adv Mater. 2011 Dec 15;23(47):5658-62. doi: 10.1002/adma.201102938. Epub 2011 Nov 7.


A simple organic salt, diisopropylammonium chloride, shows the highest ferroelectric phase transition temperature among molecule-based ferroelectrics with a large spontaneous polarization, making it a candidate for practical technological applications.
