Omniconjugation is introduced as a new architectural concept for the design of complex molecular structures that allows for the interconnection of many functional entities in a fully conjugated manner. So far, such π‐conjugated topologies have never been explicitly recognized or investigated from this point of view. A topological design method has been developed by which a large number of realistic omniconjugated structures can be constructed. This new class of π‐conjugated systems can be divided in two sub‐classes that differ in their ‘switching’ behavior upon passage of solitons. Furthermore, we found that the principle of omniconjugation may give rise to a pronounced and, sometimes, unique π‐electron delocalization of the frontier orbitals. These preliminary results indicate that omniconjugation could be applicable in several ways (as passive or active elements) in future nanoelectronic devices.
