FeCo Prussian blue analogues, which are known as typical molecule-based magnets, exhibited abrupt conductance switching by applying a high electric field as well as by varying the temperature. The current density versus electric field (J-E) curves of FeCo Prussian blue with Rb cations in interstitial sites shows so-called negative resistance effects at electric fields higher than the threshold voltage. This means that the FeCo Prussian blue analogues are multiproperty materials in the sense that their conducting, magnetic, and optical properties can be reversibly controlled by certain external stimuli.
