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

Author affiliations

Abstract

Scanning tunneling microscopy tips were functionalized with a boronic acid derivative. In combination with a similarly modified substrate, the molecular tip forms a 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.
