Molecular electronic devices require robust molecular wires to conduct charge over long distances. A new wire based on a repeating bipyridine structure shows unprecedented conductance and maintains it over longer distances compared with other carbon-based wires (J. Phys. Chem. Lett., DOI: 10.1021/jz302057m). A team led by Magdaléna Hromadová of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic . . .
