A robust molecular unit nanogrid servicing as network nodes via molecular installing technology

Author affiliations

Abstract

Organic square nanogrid units have been designed in order to create molecular system nodes and their networks. A nanogrid that consists of four fluorenes and two carbazoles has been synthesized by molecular installing technology from an L-shaped synthon at a total yield of 21%. The fluorene-based nanogrids showed excellent thermal, electrochemical and spectral stability. Nanogrids will be one robust platform to polynodes for the exploration of molecular consciousness, intelligence and robotics.
