Scanning tunnelling microscopy of a foldamer prototype at the liquid/solid interface: water/Au(111) versus1-octanol/graphite

Abstract

We report the design and synthesis of a catechol based foldamer containing amide functionalized alkyl chains, and its monolayer formation at the liquid/solid interface. By scanning tunnelling microscopy, both at the 1-octanol/graphite interface as well as at the water/Au(111) interface, the self-assembly has been investigated with submolecular resolution, demonstrating clear solvent dependent effects on the conformation of the ‘foldamer’ and its monolayer formation.
