We show, based on our recently published works and their present extension to include also the electron energy current, that the single-molecule conductance, junction thermopower, and electron thermal conductance strongly depend on the choice of the molecular anchor group and on the geometry of the investigated gold-biphenyl-gold contacts. We compare two different anchor groups, sulfur and cyano. The electron-donating S anchor group gives rise to a positive thermopower, while the electron-withdrawing cyano anchor results in a negative thermopower. For the S-terminated biphenyl a strong variation of the transport coefficients with respect to the binding motif is observed, for CN-terminated biphenyl such variations remain small.</dcterms:abstract> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/41"/> <dc:contributor>Pauly, Fabian</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/33205"/> <dc:creator>Pauly, Fabian</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Asai, Yoshihiro</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
