Abstract: A better understanding of the interactions between metal electrodes and organic molecules still represents one of the key problems in molecular electronics that needs to be solved in order to optimize electron transport through a molecular device. In this contribution, the impact of widely used "alligator clips" (Au-thiol, Pd-pyridine) onto the electronic struture of the respective electrodes in metal-molecule- metal junctions has been studied using photo-electron spectroscopic tools. Different electronic properties are observed for molecules with different lenghts but identical terminal groups, thereby elucidating a new aspect in the complex behavior of metal/molecule contacts.
