A summary of the article is shown below:
A novel strategy to regulate the tunneling mechanism for charge transport through an organoborane wire via Lewis acid-base interactions has been developed. A change from LUMO- to HOMO-dominated charge transport upon the addition of the fluoride is verified both experimentally and theoretically.
