The development of microelectronics toward higher integration density is to encounter some fundamental physical limits in the near future. As a consequence research efforts are made to develop molecular electronics (in contrast to nowadays solid state electronics). In the course of these studies we are investigating small molecular sub-structures of the silicon crystal lattice so called polysilanes. We are interested to devise methods to synthesize these compounds selectively and study their physical and especially chemical properties.
