Dr. Yuta Tsuji, Takayuki Semoto and Prof. Kazunari Yoshizawa A Bipodal Dicyano Anchor Unit for Single-Molecule Spintronic Devices ChemPhysChem 14
Get a grip! A new type of anchor unit based on the dicyano group is proposed by using sophisticated first-principles quantum chemical calculations. The energy of the LUMO is lowered by the electron-withdrawing dicyano anchor group. This low-lying LUMO level plays a crucial role in determining the spin filtering efficiency of molecular junctions (see picture).
