We investigate the spin transport properties of molecules belonging to the acenes series by using density functional theory combined with the non-equilibrium Green’s function approach to electronic transport. While short acenes are found to be non-magnetic, molecules comprising more than nine acene rings have a spin-polarized ground state. Once the molecule is attached asymmetrically to Au electrodes via thiol linkers, a net fractional magnetic moment is produced. In this situation the system Au/n-acene/Au can act as an efficient spin-filter with interesting applications in the emerging field of organic spintronics.
