We analyze the formation and evolution statistics of single-molecule junctions bonded to gold electrodes using amine, methyl sulfide, and dimethyl phosphine link groups by measuring conductance as a function of junction elongation. For each link, the maximum elongation and formation probability increase with molecular length, strongly suggesting that(More)
In this paper we measure time-varying uncertainty of macroeconomic variables and study the links to asset returns via a consumption-based asset pricing model. To this end, we introduce a stochastic volatility model and propose a Bayesian procedure identifying the model for multivariate processes. Novel features of our volatility setup include a unit root(More)
Online prices are increasingly being used for measurement and research applications, yet little is known about their relation to prices collected offline, where most retail transactions take place. I conduct the first large-scale comparison of prices simultaneously collected from the websites and physical stores of 56 large multi-channel retailers in 10(More)
A new chromogenic, self-assembled molecular capsule G@22 is developed by introducing four (N,N-dimethyl-4-aminophenyl) azobenzyl moieties on the upper rim of a resorcin[4]arene-based amidoimino-cavitand. The tuning of conjugation between amido and (N,N-dimethyl-4-aminophenyl)azobenzyl groups by acid-base titration allows naked-eye detection of molecular(More)
The facile synthesis of a resorcin[4]arene-based imino-cavitand with benzamido moieties and its self-assembly into molecular capsules are reported. Benzamido-iminocavitand efficiently self-assembled into thermally inert molecular capsules in the presence of suitable guests via the eight intermolecular N-H···O=C hydrogen bonds.
