The electronic properties of conjugated and saturated dithiol molecules sandwiched between two Au(111) electrodes were studied. The first principles density functional calculations with a slab geometry were used. The behavior of the local density of electronic states (LDOS) for benzene-, dibenzene-, and xylyl-dithiol molecules was analyzed.
