A way to prepare molecular electronic wires in organic media is the solubilization of one-dimensional mixed-valence complexes with varied metal species through the formation of amphiphilic supramolecular assemblies (see picture). Dissociation and reassembly of the complex was detected as thermochromism in the intervalence (M(II) → M(IV)) absorption bands.
