Click chemistry for conjugated molecular wire
J. Am. Chem. Soc., Article ASAP, DOI: 10.1021/ja103239b

The article demonstrates a beautiful example of click chemistry for the synthesis of long (>4nm) pi-conjugated wires (all-aromatic backbone structure) bonded to metal electrodes.
Elegantly designed, nicely executed, fully characterized, and convincingly presented.
Aromatic and rigid triazole structure from click chemistry is explored to deliver the unique property for the applications in materials science and nanotechnology.
The measurement confirms the length-dependent conductance and mechanism transition.
