Isolated water molecule: Electron transport through a single molecule of H2O@C60 is directly measured between Au nanogap electrodes using the break junction technique. By comparison with results on single-molecule measurements of empty C60, the intramolecular electrostatic interaction is found to be negligible, indicating that the entrapped H2O is almost fully isolated from the external field.

In-device hot-electron spectroscopy is demonstrated as a direct and reliable technique for the determination of the energy barrier between a metal and a solution-processed electron-transporting organic semiconductor. With experimental advance, this work opens new possibilities to bring this technique closer to the organic electronics industry.
