Organic electronics: A tetracationic macrocyle containing two naphthalenediimide (NDI) units and four pyridinium rings was synthesized and investigated for its potential use as an organic semiconductor. The incorporation of the NDI units into the constitution of cyclobis(paraquat-p-phenylene) has resulted in a macrocyle that exhibits a boat-shape conformation and assembles into an ultralarge-pore supramolecular framework with semiconducting properties.

Isolated water molecule: Electron transport through a single molecule of H2O@C60 is directly measured between Au nanogap electrodes using the break junction technique. By comparison with results on single-molecule measurements of empty C60, the intramolecular electrostatic interaction is found to be negligible, indicating that the entrapped H2O is almost fully isolated from the external field.
