Chapter 1 represents brief introduction into the field of molecular electronics, its main scientific branches and aspects related to both, chemistry and physics which are highlighted within this work. Beyond omnipresent analytical toolkit, great deal of effort is put to magnify an application of tetraphenylmethane based tripodal structures, discussing structural features, which warranted strong contact of the adsorbate to the metal surface. Furthermore, solid background about history of tetraphenylmethane is given. Its syntheses, as well as ways of their applications are covered, ranging from dendrimer compounds, ending up at organic frameworks.Chapter 2 described the concept of molecular tripods, terminated directly in a a para and meta position of tetragonal stands by the sulfur anchoring groups, molecular design and synthesis of target molecules. Moreover, molecular design and the synthesis of funcional molecules addressed for the surface deposition and charge transport inspection were presented.Chapter 3 presents physical investigations of a short tripodal nanoobjects, importance of anchoring groups and their position as well as phenomenon arising from their surface deposition. Indeed, oligoarylenes deocrated platforms are widely explored in terms of charge transport properties. Chapter 4 shows molecular design and synthetic patways towards chmically tuned tetragonal, bidente monomer, appropiate for self-polymerisation. Moreover, the light is shed on its identification and properties.
