The first molecular material with the coexistence of ferromagnetism, metal-like conductivity, and chirality has been prepared using an organic/inorganic approach. In this case, a two-dimensional packing of chiral organic radical cations (responsible for both the electrical conductivity and optical activity) was assembled with a layered bimetallic oxalate-based anionic network (responsible for the magnetic properties). Shubnikov-de Haas oscillations confirmed the presence of a Fermi surface even when the transport properties suggested "insulating"-type behavior at very low temperatures.
