Abstract

The construction of a very simple electronic device, a rectifier, based on the use of a single organic molecule is discussed. The molecular rectifier consists of a donor pi system and an acceptor pi system, separated by a sigma-bonded (methylene) tunnelling bridge. The response of such a molecule to an applied field is calculated, and rectifier properties indeed appear. © 1974.
