Molecular species find wide-spread application in surface modification and device functionalisation, at the thin-film and single-molecule levels. The molecular and electronic structure are intimately coupled and ultimately define the chemical, physical, charge transport and other properties of such architectures. Interestingly, using chemical synthesis molecules can often be made with atomic precision and with enormous variability and complexity. This allows for electronic precision ‘engineering’ of the molecule/substrate interface, exploiting i.a. ‘unusual’ quantum effects such as quantum interference and charge delocalisation (‘molecular quantum dots’). I will discuss the relation between structure and different kinds of quantum interference in molecular systems and highlight some implications for new applications in quantum-based biosensing and thermoelectrics.
