Abstract

Layer-by-layer metal-cluster molecular multilayers are fabricated onto preorganized self-assembled monolayers on Au electrode surfaces. The molecular building block, [Ru33-O)(μ-CH3COO)6 (bpy)2(CO)] (bpy=4,4′-bipyridine), is applied by displacing the water ligand on the cluster core (see picture), which is precisely controlled through the electrode potential. The series of multilayers transport electrons across the molecularly linked backbone.
