Two in a row: A pentacene dimer in which both units are covalently linked through a [2.2]paracyclophane bridge, has been synthesized (see picture). The electronic properties of the molecule were elucidated by a combination of experimental and computational methods. Such molecules could lead to materials with improved charge-transport properties.
