Presentation Transcript
  1. CNMS Staff Science Highlight Electronic Control Over Attachment and Self-Assembly of Alkyne Groups on Gold Scientific Achievement Demonstrated a non-thermal, electron-induced approach to the self-assembly of phenylacetylene molecules on gold that allows for a previously unachievable attachment of the molecules to the surface through the alkyne group. • Significance • Self-assembled monolayers are typically produced by a rather inefficient process that involves thermally driven attachment reactions of precursor molecules to a metal surface, followed by a slow and defect-prone molecular reorganization. The electron-induced excitation method demonstrated in this work may therefore enable new and highly controlled approaches to molecular self-assembly on a surface. • Research Details • CNMS capability: Experiments utilize a home-built scanning tunneling microscope, with temperature range 25-300 K. • Full-electron computation of molecular orientation and bonding. • Fully reversible all-electron control over alkyne self-assembly. • Alkyne attached to gold without oxidants or thermal excitation. • New method bypasses the thermal bottleneck, creating opportunities for assembly (new molecules, stimuli, structures and reactions) beyond existing paradigms that require thermal activation. erase write Transition between the disordered and ordered phase on the Au(111) surface due to reaction induced by the AFM tip.
