Organic resistance memory has attracted a lot of attention due to its high scalability, flexibility, easy processing, low fabrication cost, etc. Organic small molecules, which possess well-defined structures and more accurate experiment-simulation matching, have been widely explored as active materials for application in organic resistance memory. In addition, inorganic-organic hybrid polymers are expected to have charming resistive switching properties because they can potentially combine the advantages of both inorganic materials and organic polymers. This review presents the recent progress of organic resistance memory based on several families of organic small molecules and some typical inorganic-organic hybrid polymers, and discussion of their structure-property relationships.
