Ni–Cu ion exchange observed for Ni(II)–porphyrins on Cu(111)

Author affiliations


A Ni–Cu ion exchange has been observed for (5,15-dibromo-10,20-diphenylporphyrinato)nickel(II) (NiDBrDPP) and (5,10,15,20-tetrakis(4-bromophenyl)porphyrinato)nickel(II) (NiTBrPP) on Cu(111). The ion exchange proceeds at a faster rate for the NiDBrDPP/Cu(111) system compared to NiTBrPP/Cu(111). This is explained in terms of the macrocycle–substrate distance and the distortions that occur when the molecules are deposited on the Cu(111) surface.
