Covalently linked molecule–electrode contacts toward robust molecular-electronics circuits
MetadataShow full item record
The use of molecules as active components in electronic devices is a trend in current electronics and a potential alternative to the semiconductor-based nanoelectronics. This thesis provides a step forward in terms of potential chemistries for molecular electronics on silicon. Different molecule-electrode contacts were investigated at the macro and nano-scale using electrochemical techniques and single-molecule circuits. The work also explored the potential of silicon oxide layers as alternative materials in molecular electronics, as both a static and dynamic material.

Conceptual change in secondary chemistry : the role of multiple analogical models of atoms and molecules.Harrison, Allan G. (1996)Chemistry textbooks and teachers frequently use a variety of metaphors, analogies and models to describe atomic and molecular structures and processes. While it is widely believed that multiple analogical models encourage ...
