"Doping" of Polyyne with an Organometallic Fragment Leads to Highly Conductive Metallapolyyne Molecular Wire.

"Doping" of Polyyne with an Organometallic Fragment Leads to Highly Conductive Metallapolyyne... Exploration of highly conductive molecules is essential to achieve single-molecule electronic devices. The present paper describes the results on single-molecule conductance study of polyyne wires doped with the organometallic Ru(dppe)2 fragment, X-(C≡C) n-Ru(dppe)2-(C≡C) n-X. The metallapolyyne wires end-capped with the gold fragments (X = AuL) are subjected to single-molecule conductance measurements with the STM break junction technique, which reveal the high conductance (10-3-10-2 G0; n = 2-4) with the low attenuation factor (0.25 Å-1) and the low contact resistance (33 kΩ). A unique "'doping'" effect of Ru(dppe)2 fragment was found to lead to the high performance as suggested by the hybrid density functional theory-nonequilibrium green function calculation. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of the American Chemical Society Pubmed

"Doping" of Polyyne with an Organometallic Fragment Leads to Highly Conductive Metallapolyyne Molecular Wire.


Abstract

Exploration of highly conductive molecules is essential to achieve single-molecule electronic devices. The present paper describes the results on single-molecule conductance study of polyyne wires doped with the organometallic Ru(dppe)2 fragment, X-(C≡C) n-Ru(dppe)2-(C≡C) n-X. The metallapolyyne wires end-capped with the gold fragments (X = AuL) are subjected to single-molecule conductance measurements with the STM break junction technique, which reveal the high conductance (10-3-10-2 G0; n = 2-4) with the low attenuation factor (0.25 Å-1) and the low contact resistance (33 kΩ). A unique "'doping'" effect of Ru(dppe)2 fragment was found to lead to the high performance as suggested by the hybrid density functional theory-nonequilibrium green function calculation.
