Molecular wires (or sometimes called molecular nanowires) are molecular-scale objects which conduct electrical current. They are the fundamental building blocks for molecular electronic devices. Their typical diameters are less than three nanometers, while their bulk lengths may be macroscopic, extending to centimeters or more.

... Molecular wires can be incorporated into polymers, enhancing their mechanical and/or conducting properties ... The enhancement of these properties relies on uniform dispersion of the wires into the host polymer ... Recent advances in the use of MoSI wires have been made in such composites, relying on their superior solubility within the polymer host compared to other nanowires or nanotubes ...
Famous quotes containing the word wire:
“Constantly risking absurdity
whenever he performs
above the heads
of his audience
the poet like an acrobat
climbs on rime
to a high wire of his own making.”
—Lawrence Ferlinghetti (b. 1919)
