Nanowires of molecule-based charge-transfer salts

Author affiliations


Nanowires of molecule-based charge-transfer salts are prepared using two different processing techniques. Isolated [TTF][TCNQ] nanowires are grown by a simple adsorption in organic solution method on stainless steel conversion coatings, used as substrates. They are characterized by Raman spectroscopy and current–voltage measurements. Nanowire films of Per2[Au(mnt)2] and (EDT-TTFVO)4(FeCl4)2 are electrodeposited on (001)-oriented silicon wafers, used as anodes. In the second case, growth as nanowires occurs after functionalizing the Si electrode with a phospholipidic membrane. Electrodeposited nanowire films are studied by various techniques, including electron microscopy, vibrational spectroscopies, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and conductivity measurements.
