Linker-Free Molecular Wires
Stringing conjugated organic compounds between two electrodes via direct metal-carbon bonds rather than via linking groups will likely change the way molecular electronic circuits are “wired.” Although circuits made of molecular building blocks are not yet a reality outside research laboratories, they promise to shrink electronics beyond what is possible with silicon-based devices.
