Photovoltages for hydrogen-terminated p-Si(111) in an acetonitrile electrolyte were quantified with methyl viologen [1,1′-(CH3)2-4,4′-bipyridinium](PF6)2, abbreviated MV2+, and [Ru(bpy)3](PF6)2, where bpy is 2,2′-bipyridine, that respectively undergo two and three one-electron transfer reductions.
We report the synthesis of eleven 2,2′-bipyridine (bpy) ligands functionalized for covalent immobilization on either metal oxide or hydrogen-terminated silicon surfaces.
