  • Reorientation of thiols during their 2D self-assembly is well established; however, little is known about its energetics and the factors that control its onset. We have developed a new strategy to determine the critical reorientational surface concentration (crsc) of thiols at the substrate/solution interface, which makes use of a cathodic stripping protocol. Its application to distinct homologous series of alkylthiols shows that the magnitude of the crsc and its variation with the molecular… CONTINUE READING
