A mixed self-assembled monolayer consisting of a ruthenium tris-bipyridine complex linked to viologen and a palladium phthalocyanine derivative was fabricated on a gold electrode by means of pendant thiol groups. The direction of the photocurrent which is induced in the electrode when it is irradiated depends on the wavelength of the light used.
