Variation's what you need: Variation of the assembly sequence in which layers of two isostructural metal complexes are built up leads to molecular materials with electrochemical properties that depend on the assembly sequence. These properties vary from reversible electron transfer to unidirectional current flows and even charge trapping. The sequence-dependent assembly strategy has implications for various disciplines that involve self-assembly.
