Specific single-molecule detection of glucose in a supramolecularly designed tunnel junction

Abstract

The tip of scanning tunneling microscopy was functionalized with a boronic acid derivative. In combination with the similarly modified substrate, the molecular tip forms the supramolecular complex selectively with a glucose molecule. The conductance of the resulting single complex allows one to achieve the specific single-molecule detection of glucose.
