Paper Abstract

In this paper the energy of an electron excited in conduction state in benzene (C6H6) molecule is estimated. The possible energy of the excited electron depends on the eigen energy state of the excited electron. Estimation of energy of an electron excited in conduction in C6H6 molecule is necessary to analyze fluctuation in currents in benzene molecule. Stable current-voltage (I-V) behavior of benzene molecule ensures functionality of any nano device involving benzene molecule or its derivative. This theoretical work can be verified by experiment of radiation from an excited benzene molecule. The result will give precise idea about the energy needed to destabilize the electrical behavior of devices made of benzene molecules. Benzene molecule is interseting for its potential in molecular nano electronics. The hexagonal core plane of the benzene molecule is relatively unalterable compared to the π localized electrons. Disturbance in the π-electron cloud will cause creation of hole by exciting a π electron to jump for conduction or may push an excited electron in the π electron cloud. The analysis of these effects rely on estimates of the energy imbalance due to presence of excited charged particles. This work is a beginning step in this front. The knowledge can be used to engineer improved switching mechanism using benzene molecule as an electronic device.
