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)
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)
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)
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)
