Molecular design of chromium arenes are theoretically studied as a model for the development of novel thermally-driven molecular fuses. This study correlates the switching event with a partial disconnection of the molecule from the metallic electrode mediated by changes in the conformational states of the molecule directed by external stimuli. Moreover, the reversibility of the process (the reconnection to the metallic electrode) is also considered for these systems when a reversal voltage pulse (reset) is applied. The energetic requirements of the on and off states are correlated with temperature through the Arrhenius equation. To carry out this study we performed density functional theory (DFT) calculations.
