Abstract

The asymmetrical forward versus reverse - bias DC electrical conductivity (macroscopic and also nanoscopic) through Langmuir-Blodgett multilayers and monolayers of γ-(nhexadecyl) quinolinum tricyanoquinodimethanide, C16H33Q-3CNQ (1) is attributable to rectification of electrical current by a single molecule.
