ABSTRACT: Asymmetries in the macroscopic and the nanoscopic direct‐current electrical conductivity through Langmuir‐Blodgett multilayers and monolayers of γ‐(n‐hexadecyl)quinolinum tricyanoquinodimethanide, HDQ‐3CNQ (1) can be ascribed to a transition from the ground‐state zwitterionic state (shown) to a presumably neutral excited‐state conformer, thus confirming indubitably rectification of electrical current by a single molecule.
