An electronic conductance with small fluctuations, which is stipulated in single-molecule junctions, is necessary for the precise control of single-molecule devices. However, the suppression of conductance fluctuations in conventional molecular junctions is intrinsically difficult because the fluctuations are related to the contact fluctuations and(More)
Amberlite IRA 900 anion-exchange resin modified with manganese-tetrakis(sulphophenyl)-porphine has been used as a catalyst instead of peroxidase for the determination of hydrogen peroxide by the reaction 2H(2)O(2) + N,N-diethylaniline + 4-aminoantipyrine (catalyst)--> quinonoid dye (lambda(max) 550 nm) + 4H(2)O. The apparent molar absorptivity for hydrogen(More)
An ammonium complex of the hexafluoro cage compound 1 was isolated and its structure was elucidated by X-ray crystallographic analysis. The C-F bonds are elongated by the complexation, which is clear evidence of C-F...cation interaction. The driving force of NH4(+) inclusion is the C-F cation interaction, but the C-F...HN+ hydrogen bond does not contribute(More)
We report, herein, the design, synthesis, and properties of new materials directed toward molecular electronics. A transition metal-containing insulated molecular wire was synthesized through the coordination polymerization of a Ru(II) porphyrin with an insulated bridging ligand of well-defined structure. The wire displayed not only high linearity and(More)
We investigated the effect of the environment on the electrical conductance of a single benzene-1,4-diamine (BDA) molecule bridging Au electrodes, using the scanning tunneling microscope (STM). The conductance of the single BDA molecule junction decreased upon a change in the environment from tetraglyme, to mesitylene, to water, and finally to N(2) gas,(More)
The C-F...M(+) interaction was investigated by observation of the NMR spectroscopic changes and complexation studies between metal cations and the cage compounds 1 and 2 which have fluorobenzene units as donor atoms. As a result, the interaction was detected with all of the metal cations which form complexes with 1 and 2. The stability of the complexes of 1(More)
The C-F.M(+) interaction was investigated by employing a cage compound 1 that has four fluorobenzene units. The NMR ((1)H, (13)C, and (19)F) spectra and X-ray crystallographic analyses of 1 and its metal complexes showed clear evidence of the interaction. Short C-F.M(+) distances (C-F.K(+), 2.755 and 2.727 A; C-F.Cs(+), 2.944 and 2.954 A) were observed in(More)
