Intermolecular carbon nanotube junctions were formed through amide linkage of amino functionalized multiwall carbon nanotubes and [Ru (dcbpy)(bpy)2](PF6)2, an inorganic metal complex. Nanotube interconnects were visualized using atomic force microscopy. Absorption and emission spectroscopy showed significant changes between starting products and the resulting ruthenium nanotube complex, indicative of successful chemical modification.
