Understanding the Non-covalent interaction mediated modulations to the electronic structure of quasi-zero-dimensional graphene nanoflakes

Abstract

In the contemporary years, the magnetic or electric field induced modulations to the electronic environment of single molecular systems are a common practice. In this particular study, we have instigated the possibility of controlling the electronic and spin-dependent properties of hydrogen-terminated graphene fragments, so-called graphene nanoflakes (GNF) using weak non-covalent interaction as the external stimuli. The topological frustration in the graphene fragment appreciated the compelling electronic behavior of the system. This leads to some unorthodox spin-distribution in the system and it is possible to synchronize this electronic perturbation switching through a non-covalent interaction. These findings institute new avenue to sculpting such donor-acceptor composite as a self-regulated spintronic device in the next generation electronics.
