Probing Lewis acid–base interactions in single-molecule junctions

Author affiliations

Abstract

A novel strategy to regulate the tunneling mechanism for charge transport through an organoborane wire via Lewis acid–base interactions has been developed. A change from LUMO- to HOMO-dominated charge transport upon the addition of the fluoride is verified both experimentally and theoretically.
