Abstract

Face-to-face communication: Electron transport through single-molecule π stacks was directly measured between gold nanogap electrodes by using STM (see scheme). Self-assembled coordination cages containing π-stacked aromatic molecules are conductive (right), whereas the empty cage is not (left).
