  • ABSTRACTCyclic voltammetry (CV) was used to study the reduction potentials of 2,5- di(ethynylphenyl)-4-nitroaniline and 2,5-di(ethynylphenyl)nitrobenzene. Although no absolute reduction potentials can be used in the correlation between solution (CV) and solid state (nanopore) embodiments, each CV plot showed two reductions. The first and second reduction might correspond to switching events of recently reported molecular electronic devices in a nanopore. Cyclic voltammetry results are also reported for other potential molecular scale electronic devices.
