Low-dimensionality is acribed to materials that exhibit large anisotropic ratios in some intensive physical properties. For example, pseudo- one-dimensional materials typically have significantly greater optical, magnetic, electrical, andor mechanical properties in one dimension with respect to the orthogonal directions. Similarly, pseudo-two-dimensional complexes exhibit pronounced physical properties in two dimensions with respect to the remaining dimension. These enhanced properties arise from cooperative interactions manifested by linear chain 1-D or layer 2-D structures, which principally occur in the solid. For years, advancement in this area of science was dominated by synthetic chemistry however, in the last decade physicists have characterized the unique properties exhibited by these materials.
