Abstract

Electroactive organometallic molecules have been covalently attached to electrode surfaces through an ethynyl linkage. The process takes advantage of ethynyl-based radicals generated by anodic oxidation of a lithio-activated terminal ethynyl group. Electrophores containing redox-active ferrocene, cymantrene, or cobaltocenium moieties have been deposited at the one-to-three monolayer level. Both metal-based and ligand-based chemical reactions have been carried out on the surface-modified systems.
