Abstract : The long-term research interests of this work focus on behaviors of electron transfer through metal-metal bonds which can be extended with more metal atoms or with axially coordinated functionality and thus evolves into a unique category of functional molecular wires. The work carried out in this AOARD project is the synthesis of novel molecular metal wires, including pentachromium compounds (New J. Chem. 2012, 36, 632), rigid diazaphenoxazine as the equatorial ligands (Dalton Trans. 2012, 41, 3166), a naphthyridine-based ligand to furnish tetranickel metal wires (C. R. Chim. 2012, 15, 159), and diruthenium moieties coordinated axially with ethynyls to form linear pi-conjugated molecular wires (Inorg. Chem. 2012, 51, 3261; 2012, 51, 7561; Organometallics 2013, 32, in press). Studies show that the ligands perturb the electronic structures and the electron-transport properties of the metal-metal frameworks
