Molybdenum acetate molecules are used on the surface of the insulator to arrange the metal atoms neatly, which can be used in nanoelectronic products. In order to produce miniature electronic memory or sensors in the future. It is essential to be able to arrange individual metal atoms on an insulating layer. Scientists at Bielefeld University's Faculty of Chemistry have now demonstrated that this is possible at room temperature.
