Molecular electronics studies charge transport through molecules and the applications in electronic devices where molecules serve as the ultimate nanosized building blocks. Controllable charge transport properties and stable electrical junctions lie at the heart of molecular electronics because of their crucial impact on practical devices, and both of them concern engineering at the surface and interface, e.g., anchoring functional molecules onto electrodes and forming densely packed monolayers resistive against electrostatic pressure. This thesis aims to unite the synthesis and characterization of functional (bio)organic semiconductive molecular self-assemblies and the fabrication of electronic devices comprising these ensembles for paradigm-shifting applications from a surface engineering perspective.
