A new paper entitled "Measuring Level Alignment at the Metal-Molecule Interface by in situ Electrochemical 13C NMR" by Ying Li, Brian Zelakiewicz, Tom Allison, and YuYe J. Tong has been published on the ChemPhysChem early view website on January 13, 2015 (DOI: 10.1002/cphc.201402889). The paper reported a new technique to measure energy-level alignment at a metal–molecule interface between the Fermi level of the metal and the frontier orbitals of the molecule. The method, which combines the electrochemistry of organo-ligand-stabilized Au nanoparticles with 13C NMR spectroscopy (i.e. in situ electrochemical NMR), enables measuring both occupied and unoccupied states.
