Electron transfer through α-peptides attached to vertically aligned carbon nanotube arrays: a mechanistic transition

Author affiliations

Abstract

The mechanism of electron transfer in α-aminoisobutyric (Aib) homoligomers is defined by the extent of secondary structure, rather than just chain length. Helical structures (Aib units ≥3) undergo an electron hopping mechanism, while shorter disordered sequences (Aib units <3) undergo an electron superexchange mechanism.
