Progress in nanotechnology crucially depends on molecular-scale materials with tunable physical or functional properties, yet with well-defined and controllable geometrical structure. Mo6S9-xIx (MoSI) molecular wires (MWs) have extremely low coupling to the environment and to each other. Aggregation doping allows tuning their electronic properties from semiconducting to one-dimensional metals (Tomonaga-Luttinger liquid). Hybrid networks of MoSI MWs and gold nanoparticles self-assemble in aqueous solution into scale-free self-organized critical networks bearing the scope for fast signal processing and high failure resistance.
