Abstract

Single layers of C60 mono- and bis-adducts have been obtained by functionalizing an acid-terminated self-assembled monolayer (SAM) of thiols on gold. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy demonstrated the grafting onto the SAM by covalent bonding, via the formation of an amide bond, while cyclic voltammetry and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy provided information on the redox properties of the C60-films, as well as on structural characteristics.
