Molecular effects on ransport across metal/organic molecule/semiconductor junctions, in contrast to metal/molecule/metal ones, can be solely electrostatic rather han be the result of the transmittance of molecules. In extremis, this yields metal/insulator/semiconductor (MIS) behavior in structures, apparently without insulator. This Progress Report also considers transport mechanisms, effects of new energy levels from molecule-electrode interactions, and temperature effects on ransport.
