Selenolate is considered as an alternative to thiolate to serve as a headgroup mediating the formation of self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) on coinage metal substrates. There are however ongoing vivid discussions regarding the advantages and disadvantages of these anchor groups, regarding, in particular, the energetics of the headgroup-substrate int...
Self-assembled monolayers (SAMs), prepared by reaction of terminal n-alkynes (HC≡C(CH</sub>2)</sub>nCH</sub>3, n = 5, 7, 9, and 11) with Au(111) at 60</sup>oC were characterized using scanning tunneling microscopy (STM), infra-red reflection absorption spectroscopy (IRRAS), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), and contact angles of water. In con...
