Side-Group-Mediated Mechanical Conductance Switching in Molecular Junctions.


A key target in molecular electronics has been molecules having switchable electrical properties. Switching between two electrical states has been demonstrated using such stimuli as light, electrochemical voltage, complexation and mechanical modulation. A classic example of the latter is the switching of 4,4'-bipyridine, leading to conductance modulation of… (More)
