Moybdenum-based molecular nanowires with the general formula MoxSyIz have been shown to exhibit a variety of basic functional properties in which they display performance which is superior to other one-dimensional nanomaterials (1-6). In spite of the fact that they were discovered relatively recently, because of their consistent purity, ease of synthesis and dispersion they have already been heralded as an alternative to carbon nanotubes for quite a few applications. A recent breakthrough has enabled easy and efficient synthesis of relatively pure MoSIx nanowires (7), making them a very attractive new material for nanotechnology applications as well as for investigations of fundamental properties of one-dimensional systems. In this presentation we will give an overview of the properties of MoSIx nanowires with emphasis of nanoscale functional properties, ranging from dispersion characteristics (4), anomalous magnetic behaviour (6) to functionalisation and self-assembly into molecular-scale circuits. 1.
