The electronic properties of a molecular junction (MJ) consisting of a redox-active molecular layer and a 15 nm thick layer of aluminum oxide (AlOx) between conducting carbon contacts were compared to the same device lacking AlOx. For the electron acceptor naphthalene diimide (NDI), a negative bias applied to an NDI/AlOx MJ injects electrons into the NDI, which are blocked from further transport by the oxide. The electrons stored in the NDI more than double the charge storage over that of an equivalent dielectric parallel plate capacitor, and the dynamics of charging and discharging are completely distinct from those of a parallel plate. Replacement of NDI with an electron donor tetraphenylporphyrin (TPP) layer reverses the polarity of the charge/discharge process, with electrons leaving the TPP layer under positive bias. The charge/discharge kinetics are temperature and bias dependent, indicating the electrons injected into the NDI layer result in nuclear reorganization to the configuration of an NDI¯ an...
