Abstract

Charge transport through an insulating layer was probed using ferrocenyl-terminated dendrimers and scanning electrochemical microscopy. Experiments show that the passage through the layer is considerably enhanced when the transferred charges are brought globally to the surface by the ferrocenyl dendrimer instead of a single ferrocene molecule. This result shows that charge tunneling through an insulator could be promoted by a purely molecular nano-object.
