Reactive two-component monolayers template bottom-up assembly of nanoparticle arrays on HOPG

Author affiliations

Abstract

Two triphenyleneethynylene derivatives, 1OH and 2, self-assemble a patterned monolayer (ML) at the solution–graphite (HOPG) interface. The four molecule unit cell of the ML, (1OH1OH22), spans 19 nm and contains adjacent columns of 1OH molecules spaced by 4.7 nm. Following ML assembly, a disulfide is appended to the alcohol group on each 1OH molecule and used to capture 2.0 nm gold nanoparticles (AuNP). The patterned monolayer directs bottom-up assembly of a 5 nm/19 nm double pitch AuNP pattern.
