UPS, XPS, and NEXAFS study of self-assembly of standing 1,4-benzenedimethanethiol SAMs on gold.


We report a study of the self-assembly of 1,4-benzenedimethanethiol monolayers on gold formed in n-hexane solution held at 60 °C for 30 min and in dark conditions. The valence band characteristics, the thickness of the layer, and the orientation of the molecules were analyzed at a synchrotron using high resolution photoelectron spectroscopy and near edge X… (More)
