Two methods for attaching polypyrrole to semiconductor substrates were explored that may prove useful in the construction of molecular-based electronic devices. The use of small molecule alkenyl-pyrrole derivatives allowed covalent cross-linking of polypyrrole to silicon surfaces to form a robust interface. The use of non-covalent, or supramolecular, interactions based on DNA-polypyrrole was also used to fabricate similar interfaces.
