Research Impact & Significance- Shown is a co-crystal of two small organic molecules. These molecules have been selected to produce hydrogen-bonds where the hydrogen can be shuttled back and forth by an electric field in order to achieve ferroelectricity. Organic materials which show ferroelectricity have many applications in data storage and biocompatible electronic devices.
