Single-molecule charge transport experiments indicate that electrical current does not necessarily take the shortest route through a molecule, as is commonly assumed (J. Am. Chem. Soc., DOI: 10.1021/ja208600v). The study deepens understanding of electron transport through individual molecules and shows that the microscopy method used to probe this process can distinguish between isomers with subtle structural differences.
