Abstract/Summary

The single molecule conductances of a series of bis-2,2′:6′,2″-terpyridine complexes featuring Ru(II), Fe(II), and Co(II) metal ions and trimethylsilylethynyl (Me3SiC C−) or thiomethyl (MeS-) surface contact groups have been determined. In the absence of electrochemical gating, these complexes behave as tunneling barriers, with conductance properties determined more by the strength of the electrode−molecule contact and the structure of the “linker” than the nature of the metal-ion or redox properties of the complex.
