|Abstract:||We have successfully immobilized phosphotungstic acid (PTA), a polyoxometalate, on the surface of boron-doped diamond (BDD) surface through electrostatic self-assembly of PTA on pyridinium dye-functionalized-BDD. The inorganic/organic bilayer structure on BDD is found to exhibit fast surface-confined reversible electron transfer. The molecular dye-grafted BDD can undergo controllable electrical stripping and regeneration of PTA which can be useful for electronics or sensing applications. Furthermore, we have demonstrated the use of PTA as a molecular switch in which the direction of photocurrent from diamond to methyl viologen is reversed by the surface bound PTA. Robust photocurrent converter based on such molecular system-diamond platform can operate in corrosive medium which is not tolerated by indium tin oxide electrodes. © 2009 American Chemical Society.|
