Abstract

Single-molecule electronics have attracted a great deal of attention in terms of the bottom-up construction of electronic circuits and the potential for the ultimate miniaturization of devices. Because of the accumulated understanding of single-molecule electronics, developing new functions by orchestrated molecules, the so-called molecular architectonics, has become a new aspect of device fabrication. To realize these smart molecule devices, development of novel organic components has become an active area of research. We have developed new π-conjugated systems to act as “anchor” and “wire” units because we cannot construct molecule-based electronic devices without using these units. In this Chapter, we focus on tetraphenylmethane-based tripodal structures with anchoring functional groups to act as anchor units. We also focus on structurally well-defined oligothiophenes with encapsulating substituents for preventing intermolecular electronic communications. These oligothiophenes are candidates for “insulated molecular wire” units.

Keywords

Tripodal structure Anchor Oligothiophene Insulated molecular wire Conductance measurement Single-molecule conductance
