Chiral molecular conductor with an insulator–metal transition close to room temperature

Author affiliations

Abstract

Materials exhibiting both chirality and conductivity do not exist in nature and very few examples have been synthesised. We report here the synthesis of a chiral molecular metal which remains metallic down to at least 4.2 K. This material also exhibits room-temperature switching capabilities with a transition upon cooling below 10 °C.
