In Chap. 6, N2 was successfully placed between Pt electrodes. The lone pair of N2 formed a single-molecule junction with a high, well-defined conductance value. In this chapter, an application of the pyrazine single-molecule junction is investigated based on the findings in Chap. 6. Pyrazine is expected to have two conductance states. One is the configuration where a π orbital is parallel to the bonding direction. The other is the configuration where a p orbital is vertical to the bonding direction. Here, bi-stable states were fabricated, and their configurations were investigated in terms of their conductance and differential conductance, near edge X-ray fine structure, and theoretical calculations. The defined configurations were switched by an external force. The electrical properties of the single-molecule junction were controlled by changing the interface structure.
