Rationalizing the formation of binary mixed thiol self-assembled monolayers

Abstract

Periodic DFT-D calculations are used to decipher the role of intermolecular forces on the stability of mixed linear thiol self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) on Au(111) and compared with experiment. The interaction energy is rationalized by quantifying its different contributions. The inter-chain interaction energy is shown to be in direct relation with the surface reconstruction and the formation of adatoms. The stability of the mixed SAM systems is predicted by calculations and validated with experiments. In order to describe predictively the segregation of binary thiol mixtures adsorption on Au surfaces a segregation descriptor is defined. This procedure is a promising step forward in the prediction of segregated SAMs leading to future functional nanomaterials, including Janus or patchy nanoparticles for optics, formulation and self-assembled patterns.
