Abstract

Entropy is one of the fundamental quantities which links emerging research areas like flexibility and defect engineering in inorganic-organic hybrid materials. Additionally, a delicate balance between entropy and enthalpy can lead to intriguing temperature-driven transitions in such materials. Here, we briefly overview traditional material design principles, highlight the role of entropy in the past and discuss how computational methods can help us to understand and quantify entropic effects in inorganic-organic hybrid materials in the future.
