Fluorination as a route towards unlocking the hydrogen bond donor ability of phenolic compounds in self-assembled monolayers

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report on the comparative performance of a simple diphenol and its fluorinated analogue as hydrogen-bond-donating building blocks for the formation of multicomponent self-assembled monolayers. The fluorinated molecule is found to be a significantly more effective building block than its unfluorinated counterpart.
