A new strategy for the preparation of hybridized materials with coexisting magnetism and conductivity was developed using single-molecule magnets (SMMs) and molecular conductors. The new strategy has various advantages including easy modification of their molecular and electronic features. The hybridized materials, [{MnII2 MnIII2(hmp)6(MeCN)2}{Pt(mnt) 2}x][Pt(mnt)2]2·nMeCN (x = 2 or 4, n = 0, or 2) and [Mn2(5-MeOsaltmen)2(solvent)x][Ni(dmit) 2]y·n solvent (x = 0 or 2, y = 2, or 7, n = 0 or 4, solvent = acetone or MeCN), were prepared from cationic SMMs and acceptor types of molecular conductors by diffusion or electrochemical crystallization methods. In this review, the strategy for preparation of hybrid materials based on SMMs and molecular conductors and physical properties of the salts are discussed.
