Thin films of vapor-deposited Ni(II) and Co(II) complexes of tetraphenylporphyrin (NiTPP and CoTPP) were studied supported on gold and embedded in Al-Al(2)O(3)-MTPP-Pb tunnel diodes, where M = Ni or Co. Thin films deposited onto polycrystalline gold were analyzed by ultraviolet photoelectron spectroscopy (UPS) using He I radiation. Scanning tunneling(More)
The production of a novel two-dimensional bimolecular surface structure using weak noncovalent interactions is demonstrated and observed by scanning tunneling microscopy. This work follows the three-dimensional (3D) ideas of crystal engineering and applies the concepts of supramolecular synthons to molecular systems constrained to 2D by physisorption on a(More)
Binary thin films of cobalt(II) phthalocyanine (CoPc) and cobalt(II) tetraphenylporphyrin (CoTPP) were prepared at submonolayer coverage on Au(111)/mica substrates byvapor deposition. All sample preparation and analysis were done under an ultrahigh vacuum. Scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) constant-current images of CoPc/CoTPP mixtures showed two(More)
Bilayer and trilayer organic films grown on Au(111) were studied by scanning tunneling microscopy (STM). Studies were carried out under UHV conditions with the sample cooled to either 80 or 100K. Cobalt(II)phthalocyanine [CoPc] was deposited from vapor onto Au(111), followed by vanadyl phthalocyanine, VOPc. CoPc coverages studied were 0.5 and 1 monolayer,(More)
Nanocomposite matrices of silver/poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT) were prepared in ultrahigh vacuum through vapor-phase codeposition. Change in microstructure, chemical nature, and electronic properties with increasing filler (Ag) content were investigated using in situ XPS and UPS, and ambient AFM. At least two chemical binding states occur between Ag(More)
The adsorption of nickel(II) octaethylporphyrin (NiOEP) from benzene and chloroform solutions on highly ordered pyrolytic graphite (HOPG) was investigated with a scanning tunneling microscope (STM) operated in ambient conditions. STM images show that NiOEP self-assembles on the graphite surface and that the molecules lie flat and form 2D lattices with(More)
Development of high-performance nanomaterials with not only strong ability to trap the pollutants but also good structure stability under varying environmental conditions is a critical need for air-filtration applications. However, it has been very challenging for a filtering material to simultaneously realize multifunctional air filtration and good(More)
A low pressure vapour deposition (LPVD) technique is proposed as an environmentally friendly, cost-effective and versatile strategy for fabrication of sulfur nanomaterials. By controlling the characteristics of the deposit substrate for the LPVD, various sulfur-based nanomaterials have been obtained through a substrate-induced self-assembly process.
Copper nanoparticles (Cu NPs) were made by electroless deposition on Ge disks as substrates for surface-enhanced infrared absorption (SEIRA). Previous X-ray photoelectron spectra had shown that elemental copper is deposited on the Ge substrate and that the nanoparticulate film remains resistant to oxidation even after several days of air exposure at room(More)
