Résumé: Magnetic molecules have recently attracted interest in view of their potential to realize nanometre-sized (single)molecular spintronic devices by a combination of bottom-up selfassembly and top-down lithography techniques. We report herein on the controlled generation of magnetic molecular nanostructures on conducting surfaces, partially self-assembled on sp2-carbon nano-structures (SW-CNTs, graphene), or between nano-gap gold electrodes. The obtained supramolecular devices (see picture) are investigated in view of their I-Vcharacteristics by means of UHV- and solution-based scanning probe, break junction and electromigration techniques.
