Evaluating atomic components in fluorene wires

Author affiliations


Molecular electronics demands complex functional molecules with multiple pathways connecting electrode leads. We report the synthesis and study of a set of molecules based on a fluorene-like design in which atomic connectors are used to introduce two pathways for conductance. This manuscript details the structural demands and underlying rationale for developing high conductance in these complex molecular circuit components.
