A calixarene-based copper-centered redox switch as a data storage prototype.


A new copper redox molecular switch based on a calixarene possessing both imidazole- and quinoline-like fragments displays, through an exchange of ligands triggered by an electrochemical input, unexpected long-lasting stability of both the redox forms, as well as fast reversible cycling.
