Linking gold nanoparticles with conductive 1,4-phenylene diisocyanide–gold oligomers

Author affiliations

Abstract

It is demonstrated that 1,4-phenylene diisocyanide (PDI)–gold oligomers can spontaneously bridge between gold nanoparticles on mica, thereby providing a strategy for electrically interconnecting nanoelectrodes. The barrier height of the bridging oligomer is 0.10 ± 0.02 eV, within the range of previous single-molecule measurements of PDI.
