Previous reports have demonstrated that molecular electronic junctions exhibiting negative differential resistance show a marked substituent effect. We show that this substituent effect correlates with stability of the anionic form of the junction molecule. A sufficiently stable anion gives rise to a double potential barrier to electron transport across the molecular junction. The effect of thermal motion of the junction molecule on the electron transport is also considered.
