We demonstrate the ability to tune the current rectification in metal-molecule-metal junctions through control of the interaction strength of one of the two metal-molecule contacts. Current-voltage characteristics of thiolate bound molecular wires with a nitro or pyridine termination show that the extent of current rectification in a molecular junction correlates well with the extent of coupling between the chemical linker and metal electrode.
