Isolated single chains of the coordination polymer [Cd(6-MCP)2 · 2H2O]n (6-MCP = 6-mercaptopurinate) (see Figure and inside cover) have been prepared by ultrasonic dispersion, ultracentrifugation, and deposition on a treated mica surface, and their mechanical and electrical properties studied. The observed insulating behaviour of the chains has been confirmed using density functional theory calculations.
