Abstract

The conductivity through two self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) on gold based on the closed-and open-shell form of a polychlorotriphenylmethyl (PTM) derivative were investigated using 3D-mode conductive scanning force microscopy, and striking differences were observed, caused by their highly distinct electronic structure.
