High-performance thermoelectricity in edge-over-edge zinc-porphyrin molecular wires.

It is found that the "edge-over-edge" dimer formed from stacked ZnP rings possesses a high electrical conductance, negligible phonon thermal conductance and a high Seebeck coefficient of the order of 300 μV K-1, which is the highest room-temperature ZT ever reported for a single organic molecule.

Thermoelectricity in Molecular Junctions

By trapping molecules between two gold electrodes with a temperature difference across them, the ability to study thermoelectricity in molecular junctions provides the opportunity to address these fundamental unanswered questions about their electronic structure and to begin exploring molecular thermoeLECTric energy conversion.

Conjugated-Backbone Effect of Organic Small Molecules for n-Type Thermoelectric Materials with ZT over 0.2.

Oligoyne Molecular Junctions for Efficient Room Temperature Thermoelectric Power Generation.

Study of phonon and electron transport in alkane and oligoyne chains of various lengths finds that, due to the more rigid nature of the latter, the phonon thermal conductances of oligoynes are counterintuitively lower than that of the corresponding alkanes.

We report on a self-consistent ab initio technique for modeling quantum transport properties of atomic and molecular scale nanoelectronic devices under external bias potentials. The technique is

Influence of Quantum Interference on the Thermoelectric Properties of Molecular Junctions.

The results show that quantum interference effects can indeed be employed to enhance the thermoelectric properties of molecular junctions and show that meta-OPE3 junctions, which are expected to exhibit destructive interference effects, yield a higher thermopower.
