Electrochemical Properties of Mixed Self-Assembled Monolayers Based on Terpyridine Transition Metal Complexes
Kocábová, Jana ; Nováková Lachmanová, Štěpánka ; Vavrek, František ; Valášek, M. ; Hromadová, Magdaléna
This work presents the electrochemical characterization of mixed self-assembled monolayers\n(SAMs) of [Os(terpy)2]2+ and terpyridine connected by tripodal anchoring groups to the\npolycrystalline gold bead electrode and provides a comparison with SAM based on\n[Os(terpy)2]2+ tripodal molecules without diluting terpyridine tripodal molecules. It is shown\nthat both arrangements enable reproducible preparation of well-defined compact films. The\nelectron transfer rate constant for mixed SAM was determined from cyclic voltammograms\naccording to Laviron’s analysis and compared with the rate constant obtained previously for\nSAM containing only [Os(terpy)2]2+ tripod.

Adsorption properties of molecules containing [Ru(terpy)2]2+ and [Os(terpy)2]2+ redox switching element connected to the electrode surface by tripodal thiolate anchoring groups have been studied together with their charge transfer properties in the adsorbed form. STM-based current-voltage measurements confirmed that the conductance of self-assembled monolayer containing [Os(terpy)2]2+ redox switching element is lower than that containing [Ru(terpy)2]2+ element. This observation agrees with previously observed differences in the electron transfer rate constants of these molecules in their adsorbed state.

Electrochemical properties of new molecules containing tripodal anchor and redox switching\nelement have been studied by cyclic voltammetry and DFT quantum mechanical calculations.\nComparison of their redox properties with individual organometallic [Ru(terpy)2]2+t3+ and\n[Os(terpy)2]2+t3+ redox centers shows that covalently bonded tripodal anchor does not\ncompromise the reversibility of a redox process and has no effect on the stability of new\nmolecules. New molecular conductors have smaller HOMO-LUMO gap and both are oxidized\nat only slightly more positive potentials after tripodal substitution making them suitable for the\ndevelopment of molecular conductors with switching abilities.
Charge Transport in Single Oligophenylene Molecular Wires with Different Anchoring Groups

This work compares single molecule conductance measurements of selected organic systems containing identical oligophenylene molecular wires and different tripodal anchoring groups. Single molecule conductance G was obtained by a scanning tunneling microscopy break junction technique complemented by theoretical calculations based on the density functional theory and non-equilibrium Green’s function formalism. Two molecules were compared where the same oligophenylene wire is connected to one of the electrodes via a tripod substituted on each leg by a thiol group either in the meta or para position. By combined experimental and theoretical analysis it was possible to confirm that single molecule conductance in the metal-molecule-metal junction of both molecules corresponds to a fully extended molecular wire, which is attached to one of the electrodes by all three thiolate bonds of the tripod. Experimental results confirmed that G value of meta-connected molecules is lower than that of para, whereas junction formation probability was higher for meta functionalization.

Nováková Lachmanová, Štěpánka ; Pospíšil, Lubomír ; Talbi, B. ; Salmain, M. ; Hromadová, Magdaléna
Catalytic hydrogen evolution reaction is one of known effects observed during the electrochemical studies of proteins. Constant current chronopotentiometric stripping technique is suitable tool for the study of catalytic hydrogen evolution reaction due to the formation of peak H. This contribution compares the catalytic behaviour of nonmodified papain and its artificial derivatives prepared by the interaction of organometallic complexes of ruthenium with free sulfhydryl group of protein. The comparison of the chronopotentiometric behaviour of papain and its derivatives would help to better understand the catalytic hydrogen evolution reaction in these derivatives.

Influence of Adsorption on Electrochemical Reduction of Pyridinium Derivatives
Nováková Lachmanová, Štěpánka ; Dupeyre, G. ; Lainé, P. P. ; Hromadová, Magdaléna
Two expanded pyridinium-based compounds 1 and 2 were studied by cyclic voltammetry in two different environments. The nonaqueous solution suppresses the adsorption of the compounds on the electrode surface. Adsorption process in aqueous environment was confirmed by typical shape of the curve as well as by the linear dependence of peak current on the scan rate. The shift of standard redox potential in aqueous solution compared to nonaqueous environment toward more negative potential indicates the adsorption of reactant on the electrode surface. Larger shift observed for flat conjugated molecule 1 confirms its stronger adsorption than for the second molecule.
