Single-molecule junctions, in which a single molecule bridges a gap between metal electrodes, have attracted significant attention due to their potential applications in ultra-small electronic devices and their unique structure. Single-molecule junctions are one-dimensional nanomaterials having two metal–molecule interfaces. Thus, unconventional properties and functionalities that would not be observed in other phases (e.g., isolated molecules and bulk crystals) are expected to appear in these nanomaterials. Despite interest in these expected unconventional properties, several issues have been noted with the investigation and practical application of the unique properties of single-molecule junctions. To explore new functionality, we have investigated single-molecule junctions using a combined approach comprising fabrication, characterization, and measurement. First, we have explored a new generation of the metal–molecule interfaces formed by direct π-bonding. The interfaces made by the direct π-bonding h...
