Like flicking a switch: Chromium arenes are theoretically shown to be suitable molecular switches for the development of nanothermofuses (see picture). The design is tailored in order to have a reversible process that eventually could regenerate the molecular fuse, warranting the reusing of the device under modulated conditions.
