Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Mixed multilayers from aromatic (biphenyl) and aliphatic (octane) dithiols, using Cu(II) ions, have been prepared and characterized by ellipsometry, FTIR, and XPS. The data support the formation of multilayers in which interlayer disulfide linkages connect the 4,4′-dimercaptobiphenyl layers and intralayer disulfide bonds connect 1,8-octanedithiol molecules. Cu(I) ions connect the aromatic and alipathic layers.
