Abstract

The single-molecule conductance of a 3-ring, conjugated azomethine was studied using the mechanically controlled breakjunction technique. Charge transport properties are found to be comparable to vinyl-based analogues; findings are supported with density functional calculations. The simple preparation and good transport properties make azomethine-based molecules an attractive class for use in polymer and single-molecule organic electronics.
