Arrangement Problem Current electronics manufacturing use pre- determining templates for arrangements. As we get to 100 atoms in a single molecule, the arrangement of the molecules on the surface is more random How do we make a connection to a single element when the element may be in different places? But let’s assume these can be overcome and move on.

Conduction requires electronic orbitals which stretch from the point at which the electron is injected to the point at which the electron is withdrawn. The higher the energy of these conducting orbitals the more resistive to current the molecule is. What types of molecules have continuous electronic
