A new strategy is proposed for the fabrication of photochemical pattern of a self-assembled monolayer (SAM) of an oxo-centered tri-ruthenium (Ru 3) cluster on a gold electrode surface. The fabrication was achieved under combined photochemical and electrochemical controls. By this strategy, the patterned SAM surfaces terminated with different kinds of moiety groups such as carbon monoxide (CO), nitric oxide (NO) and a successive layer of Ru 3 cluster by ligand-exchange reaction are obtained with high yields.
