(Figure Presented) A great GaIn: Micrometer-sized conformal electrodes formed from the title compound are shown to be ideal for measuring the electrical properties of self-assembled monolayers. The image shows the bifurcation of the EGaln between a metal needle and an Ag surface (not shown) at the point indicated by the two white arrows. The portion above the arrows will form the EGaIn electrode.
