Films of linear and branched oligomer wires of Fe(tpy)2 (tpy = 2,2':6',2''-terpyridine) were constructed on a gold-electrode surface by the interfacial stepwise coordination method, in which a surface-anchoring ligand, (tpy-C6H4N=NC6H4-S)2 (1), two bridging ligands, 1,4-(tpy)2C6H4 (3) and 1,3,5-(C[triple bond]C-tpy)3C6H3 (4), and metal ions were used. The quantitative complexation of the ligands and Fe(II) ions was monitored by electrochemical measurements in up to eight complexation cycles for… Expand
