21_47b/2009Organic Nanowires: Connecting Organic Nanowires (Adv. Mater. 47/2009)

Single-crystal organic nanowires are destined to become essential components in near-future organic electronics, however, currently one of the main drawbacks preventing implementation is the difficulty of creating stable interconnections between the nanowires. On p. 4816, Ana Borras and co-workers present a universal and effective method of creating nanowire–nanowire and nanowire–metallic Ohmic connections. The inside cover image shows the connection of single-crystal metallo-phthalocyanine nanowires via silver nanoparticles.
