Scientists create world's first molecular transistor

Scientists at Liverpool University have demonstrated the first transistor constructed from a single molecule, in this case a benzene molecule between gold contacts. They were able to control the current passing through the molecule by using voltage applied across the molecule to change its energy state. The researchers stress that this simply proves that it can be done and is not viable for constructing a "molecular computer".
