Electric switches are one of the most fundamental electric circuitries. Recent developments in single-molecule techniques allow us to study various electric-switching phenomena on the single-molecule scale. In this study, the switch of the current through a single molecule of a biphenothiazine derivative was investigated using the break junction technique. The biphenothiazine derivative undergoes acid-base reaction-induced electronic modulation due to the reversible structural transformation between a closed shell and an open shell, resulting in a change in the electronic gap and effective tunneling barrier height. We succeeded in controlling the single-molecule electric conductivity of the biphenothiazine derivative wired to two Au electrodes by allowing the reaction to proceed reversibly on the electrode.
