We report on a new highly reproducible route to recognitive self-assembly of molecular-scale circuits using sulfur-terminated subnanometer diameter Mo6S9-xIx (MoSIx) molecular nanowires. We demonstrate solution-processed attachment of MoSIx connecting leads to gold nanoparticles (GNPs). We also show that naked nanowires have the potential to bind thiolated proteins such as green fluorescent protein directly, thus providing a universal construct to which almost any protein could be attached. We further demonstrate three-terminal branched circuits with GNPs, opening a self-assembly route to multiscale complex molecular-scale architectures at the single-molecule level.
