Preparation of electrochromic Prussian blue nanoparticles dispersible into various solvents for realisation of printed electronics
An insoluble solid of historic Prussian blue (PB) was transformed into dispersible PB nanoparticles in water and various hydrophilic and hydrophobic organic solvents. Via hybrid surface modificationExpand
Molecular nanostamp based on one-dimensional porphyrin polymers.
This work has employed a silane coupling reaction of porphyrin derivatives that form one-dimensional polymer wires on substrates that has successfully achieved the construction of nanoscale bamboo shoot structures. Expand
Construction of redox- and photo-functional molecular systems on electrode surface for application to molecular devices
Abstract Two systems using bottom-up fabrication of molecular wires on an electrode surface are described. The first system involves films composed of linear and branched wires of metal complexExpand
Synthesis of molecular wires of linear and branched bis(terpyridine)-complex oligomers and electrochemical observation of through-bond redox conduction.
The unique current-versus-time behavior observed under all conditions indicates that electron conduction occurs not by diffusional motion but by successive electron hopping between neighboring redox sites within a molecular wire. Expand
Construction of highly oriented crystalline surface coordination polymers composed of copper dithiooxamide complexes.
Layer-by-layer bottom-up crystal engineering of metal-organic crystals at the surface of sapphire or glass from organic and inorganic components which when mixed in solution form instantly an amorphous solid with high proton conduction. Expand
Photocurrent-generating properties of organometallic fullerene molecules on an electrode.
These devices exhibit a respectable quantum yield with photocurrent generation up to 18%, and, more importantly, the direction of the photocurrent can be changed not only by the molecular structure itself but also by changing the geometric configuration of the photoactive acceptor and donor on the ITO surface.

Superior electron-transport ability of pi-conjugated redox molecular wires prepared by the stepwise coordination method on a surface.
The results indicate that facile sequential electron hopping between neighboring metal-complex units within the wire is responsible for the high electron-transport ability. Expand
Long-range electron transport of ruthenium-centered multilayer films via a stepping-stone mechanism.
A modified tunneling mechanism named the "stepping-stone mechanism", where the alignment of site potentials forms a narrow band around E(F), making resonant tunneling possible, is proposed, which may support Tuccito et al.'s proposed mechanism. Expand
Fabrication and placement of a ring structure of nanoparticles by a laser-induced micronanobubble on a gold surface.
A single micronanobubble was generated by the Nd:YAG laser focusing point, the precise positioning of the ring structure was feasible directly on the gold surface, which makes it possible to fabricate various patterns of rings such as arrays and letters and even a double-ring structure without any photomasks or any templates.

Memory effects in molecular films of free-standing rod-shaped ruthenium complexes on an electrode.
There is significant interest in exploring new informationstorage systems for molecule-based devices as an alternative to silicon-based dynamic random access memory (DRAM) as well as molecular memories, where the charge storage in the molecular layers can be used as a memory bit. Expand
