We determine and compare, at the single molecule level and under identical environmental conditions, the electrical conductance of four conjugated phenylene oligomers comprising terminal sulfur anchor groups with simple structural and conjugation variations. The comparison shows that the conductance of oligo(phenylene vinylene) (OPV) is slightly higher than(More)
Although persistent room-temperature phosphorescence (RTP) emission has been observed for a few pure crystalline organic molecules, there is no consistent mechanism and no universal design strategy for organic persistent RTP (pRTP) materials. A new mechanism for pRTP is presented, based on combining the advantages of different excited-state configurations(More)
Electrical and mechanical properties of elongated gold-molecule-gold junctions formed by tolane-type molecules with different anchoring groups (pyridyl, thiol, amine, nitrile and dihydrobenzothiophene) were studied in current-sensing force spectroscopy experiments and density functional simulations. Correlations between forces, conductances and junction(More)

N(1)-O(2) distance is 2.85 (2)A, whilst the N(2)-O(1) distance is 2.88 (2) A. In both cases the hydrogen-bond distance is less than 3.0 A, hence these bonds play an important role in the packing of the molecules in a unit cell. The unit cell consists of four molecules with CI(1) and C1(2) as terminal atoms. The molecules are arranged in two pairs held by(More)
