We report on the exchange between a hydrophilic thiol (11-mercapto-1-undecanol) in a liquid or gas phase and a hydrophobic thiol (dodecanethiol) of similar length self-assembled on a polycrystalline gold surface for a wide range of temperatures and times. The molecular composition of the mixed monolayers is determined by the static water contact angle and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy measurements. Atomic force microscopy in lateral force mode is used to characterize the molecular domains at… CONTINUE READING
