In the pursuit of down-sizing electronic components, the ultimate limit is the use of single molecules as functional devices. The first theoretical proposal of such a device, predicted more than four decades ago, is the seminal Aviram–Ratner rectifier that exploits the orbital structure of the molecule. The experimental realization of single...

Quantum interference is a well-known phenomenon that dictates charge transport properties of single molecule junctions. However, reports on quantum interference in donor-bridge-acceptor molecules are scarce. This might be due to the difficulties in meeting the conditions for the presence of quantum interference in a donor-bridge-acceptor system....

We have described the synthesis of novel biphenylethane-based wires for molecular electronics. Exceptional single-molecule diode behavior was predicted for unsymmetrically substituted biphenylethane derivatives, synthesized here using the so far unexplored unsymmetrically substituted 1,2-bis(4-bromophenyl)ethanes as key intermediates, which were...

Destructive quantum interference has been shown to strongly reduce charge tunneling rates across molecular bridges. The current consensus is that destructive quantum interference occurs in cross-conjugated molecules, while linearly conjugated molecules exhibit constructive interference. Our experimental results on photoinduced charge transfer in...

In this communication we report on the synthesis and charge mobility of highly soluble perylenebisimid derivatives.We show that introduction of alkylester side chains results in compounds combining a high solubility with charge mobilities up to 0.22 cm2 V_1 s_1. These materials are therefore interesting as an electron acceptor for solution...

We calculated the energy landscape of charged molecules that is determined by electrostatic and induction interaction using the fully polarizable force field DRF90 in the bulk and at interfaces of the electron accepting material C60, and two exemplary electron donating materials pentacene and phthalocyanine. In particular, we compared the energy...
