Charge transfer-assisted self-limited decyanation reaction of TCNQ-type electron acceptors on Cu(100)

Author affiliations

Abstract

TCNQ derivatives adsorbed on a metal surface undergo a self-limited decyanation reaction that only affects two out of the four cyano groups in the molecule. Combined Scanning Tunneling Microscopy/X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy experiments and Density Functional Theory calculations relate the self-limiting behavior to the transfer of electrons from the metal to the molecule.
