Molecular materials containing tungsten polyoxometalates as the active elements embedded into polymer matrices are investigated as candidates for electronic device applications. The transport properties of these materials are investigated varying the interelectrode spacing and the polyoxometalate concentration. The I - V characteristics of planar devices reveal a conductivity peak at room temperature conditions for intermolecular distances less than 3 nm and electrode distances less than 100 nm. The transport characteristics are discussed in terms of tunneling mechanisms.

    The rotational tunnel splitting of the librational ground state of activated molecular hydrogen bound in a tungsten complex has been determined to be 0.95 (1) cm-1. With the assumption of a twofold cosine potential with one degree of freedom for the rotation, this result yields a barrier height...
