Look who's talking : Redox-induced chemical communication between surface-confined osmium(II) and ruthenium(III) polypyridyl complexes in organic solvents has been demonstrated. Fe2+ was used as electron carrier (see picture), and the output signal of the monolayer reporter system was read optically with a conventional UV/Vis spectrophotometer in the transmission mode. Electron transfer takes place at surface-solution interfaces. (Figure Presented).
