Predictions about the electrical conductance across molecular junctions based on self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) are often made from the SAM precursor properties. Collective electrostatic effects, however, in a densely packed SAM can override these predictions. We studied, experimentally and theoretically, molecular tunneling junctions based on thiolate SAMs with an aromatic biphenyl backbone ...
