Abstract

A 1,3-butadiyne-linked diruthenium complex 4 is successfully brought onto the gold surface in a lying flat mode to form self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) showing reversible multiple redox behaviors on the electrode surface. The diruthenium species with different oxidation states, particularly the Ru2III, III state which is unstable and impossible to isolate from the solution, can be detected by in situ IR spectroscopy.
