Abstract: [image displayed in pdf]

Directly linking a gold electrode coated with pyridine-terminated self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) to the redox-active heme unit of cytochrome c has enabled the electron-transfer mechanism to be studied as a function of distance. Comparison of the kinetic data for this system (see graph) with earlier data on COOH-terminated SAMs requires a change in the electron-transfer mechanism with distance from the electrode surface that does not involve large-amplitude conformational rearrangement.
