While charge transport in linear molecules is fairly well understood, the situation is quite different for branched or ring-shaped molecules. Depending on the charge transport mechanism, quantum interference (QI) or new types of hopping phenomena may occur, which in the case of QI can enhance the thermoelectric performance of a molecule. Hence, in this activity we study ‘new’ molecules, in an effort to understand their complex interfacial and charge transport behaviour.
