(Cyclooctatetraene) The chemical compound 1,3,5,7-cyclooctatetrene (COT) is a cyclic variant of octene, making it  annulene. It is a polyunsaturated hydrocarbon. It is a colorless to light yellow flammable liquid with melting point -27 °C and boiling point 142-143 °C. Cyclooctatetrene is not planar since a planar octagon would require angles of 135°. Because it is not planar (it is tub-shaped) and does not follow Hückel's rule, it does not exhibit aromaticity. Instead it has the reactivity of an ordinary polyene. The lengths and energies of the C-C and C=C bonds differ. ...more on Wikipedia about "Cyclooctatetraene"
Endohedral hydrogen fullerene or H2@C60 is an endohedral fullerene containing molecular hydrogen. This chemical compound has a potential application in molecular electronics and was synthesized in 2005 at Kyoto University by the group of Koichi Komatsu . Ordinarily the payload of endohedral fullerenes are inserted at the time of the synthesis of the fullerene itself or is introduced to the fullerene at very low yields at high temperatures and high pressure. This particular fullerene was synthesised in an unusual way in three steps starting from pristine C60 fullerene: cracking open the carbon framework, insert hydrogen gas and zipping up by organic synthesis methods. ...more on Wikipedia about "Endohedral hydrogen fullerene"
Fluorene, or 9H-fluorene, is a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon. It has the form of odorless white crystals with melting point 116 °C and boiling point 295 °C. It is combustible. Its chemical formula is 13 10. It has a beautiful violet fluorescence, which gave it its name. It is manufactured artificially, although it occurs in the higher boiling fractions of coal tar. It is insoluble in water and soluble in benzene and ether. ...more on Wikipedia about "Fluorene"

Molecular electronics (sometimes called moletronics) is the use of molecules as wires and other components in the construction of electronic circuitry. The concept has been controversial -- initially because the conventional electrical resistance of a wire with a molecular-scale cross-section should be enormous, making electrical conductivity impossible. ...more on Wikipedia about "Molecular electronics"

An organic light-emitting diode (OLED) is a thin-film light-emitting diode (LED) in which the emissive layer is an organic compound. OLED technology is intended primarily as picture elements in practical display devices. These devices promise to be much less costly to fabricate than traditional LCD displays. When the emissive electroluminescent layer is polymeric, varying amounts of OLEDs can be deposited in rows and columns on a screen using simple "printing" methods to create a graphical colour display, for use as television screens, computer displays, portable system screens, and in advertising and information board applications. OLED may also be used in lighting devices. ...more on Wikipedia about "Organic light-emitting diode"
The acronym PHOLED is used to signify a phosphorescent OLED. This type of technology is currently under development by a Ewing, New Jersey company called Universal Display Corporation. ...more on Wikipedia about "PHOLED"
Poly(p-phenylene vinylene) (PPV, or polyphenylene vinylene) is a conducting polymer of the rigid-rod polymer host family. ...more on Wikipedia about "Poly(p-phenylene vinylene)"
Polyacetylene (PA) is an organic polymer that can be converted to a conducting polymer of the rigid-rod polymer host family. As prepared by a Ziegler-Natta catalyst, with high levels of catalyst, the polymer is a silver, non-conductive film. Oxidation with iodine provides a 108 increase in conductivity. The 2000 Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded to Alan J. Heeger, Alan G MacDiarmid, and Hideki Shirakawa for this work. ...more on Wikipedia about "Polyacetylene"
Polyaniline (PANI) is a conducting polymer of the semi-flexible rod polymer family. Oxidation and/or doping during its synthesis provides the semiconducting properties. ...more on Wikipedia about "Polyaniline"
A polymer light-emitting diode is an electroluminescent polymer that emits light when subjected to an electric current. It is used as a thin film for full-spectrum color displays and requires a relatively small amount of power for the light produced. ...more on Wikipedia about "Polymer light-emitting diode"
A Polypyrrole (PPy) is a chemical compound formed from a number of connected pyrrole ring structures. For example a tetrapyrrole is a compound with four pyrrole rings connected.

Polythiophenes (PTs) are sulfur heterocycle polymers of thiophene which can become conducting when electrons are added or removed from the conjugated π-orbitals via doping. ...more on Wikipedia about "Polythiophene"
A rotaxane is a mechanically-interlocked molecule consisting of a dumbbell-shaped molecule that is threaded through a macrocycle or ring-like molecule. The two components are kinetically trapped as the two end-groups of the dumbbell (often called stoppers) are larger than the internal diameter of the ring, and thus prevent dissociation (unthreading) since this would require significant distortion of the covalent bonds. The name is derived from the Latin for wheel (rota) and axle (axis). ...more on Wikipedia about "Rotaxane"
Supramolecular electronics is the experimental field of supramolecular chemistry that bridges the gap between molecular electronics and bulk plastics in the construction of electronic circuitry at the nanoscale 1. In supramolecular electronics, assemblies of pi-conjugated systems on the 5 to 100 nanometer length scale are prepared by self-assembly with the aim to fit these structures between electrodes. With single-molecules as researched in molecular electronics at the 5 nanometer scale this would be impractical. Nanofibers can be prepared from polymers such as polyaniline and polyacetylene 12. Chiral oligo(p-phenylenevinylene)s self-assemble in a controlled fashion into (helical) wires 3. ...more on Wikipedia about "Supramolecular electronics"
