Adsorption-induced stability reversal of photochromic diarylethene on metal surfaces.


A scanning tunneling microscopy study of a photochromic diarylethene adsorbed on Au and Cu reveals the reversal of thermodynamic stability between its two isomers compared to the gas phase, in solution, and its single crystal, which could result from the molecule-substrate interaction such as charge transfer and hybridization.
