We find that while the conductance decays exponentially with increasing molecular length, the thermopower increases linearly as suggested by recent experiments. We also analyze how these transport properties can be tuned with methyl side groups. Our results can be explained by considering the level shifts due to their electron-donating character as well as the tilt-angle dependence of conductance and thermopower. Qualitative features of the substituent effects in our density functional calculations are explained using a tight-binding model. In addition, we observe symmetry-related even-odd transmission channel degeneracies as a function of molecular length.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Cuevas, Juan Carlos</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Pauly, Fabian</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Pauly, Fabian</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Viljas, Janne K.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Physical Review B ; 78 (2008), 3. - 035315</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/21181"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
