Abstract

An electron donor-acceptor dyad has been designed for the creation of large-area molecular junctions (MJ). Diazonium cation electrografting was used to form well controlled monolayers. The robustness of the monolayer enabled the creation of MJs using direct top-coat evaporation with a high yield of operating devices.
