Through tailoring substituents at β-positions of NiII porphyrin complexes in a push–pull system, multilevel resistive memory devices with high performance have been realized via solution-processing fabrications. In contrast to the push–pull system, analogue complexes with push only or pull only moieties are found to show only binary logic. The present study may provide a new design strategy and inspiration for the development of multistate memory devices through push–pull systems of this type.

The synthesis of large π-conjugated motifs based on two parallel oligo(phenyleneethynylene)s (OPEs) and an orthogonally situated redox-active stilbene-extended tetrathiafulvalene (TTF) is presented. The OPEs are end-capped with thioester groups as potential electrode anchoring groups.
