The generation and control of intrinsic single-molecule electroluminescence near metal surfaces is a key issue in nano-optics and plasmonics. In this paper, we use scanning tunneling microscope induced luminescence technique to realize the electroluminescence from single porphyrin molecules decoupled by self-assembled monolayer of octanethiol. These results provide useful information on the electroluminescence behavior of single porphyrins and the development of  electrically driven nano-emitters.
