Transition voltage spectroscopy reveals significant solvent effects on molecular transport and settles an important issue in bipyridine-based junctions

Outcomes of a seminal research (B. Xu and N. J. Tao, Science, 2003, 301, 1221) on the single-molecule junctions primarily based on bipyridine positioned in a solvent have been challenged just lately (S. Y. Quek et al., Nat. Nano, 2009, 4, 230) by implicitly assuming a negligible solvent affect on the molecular transport and by merely contemplating low bias conductance information. On this paper we display that solvent results on...
