Abstract: We have studied the orientation and barrier properties of self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) of two alkanedithiols, hexanedithiol, octanedithiol, and an aromatic dithiol, 1,4-benzene dimethanethiol (BDMT), on gold in acetonitrile. From our studies, we conclude that BDMT molecules can form more organized monolayers on gold than aliphatic dithiol SAMs due to extremely strong lateral van der Waals interaction among the phenyl rings in the former. A study of the adsorption kinetics of octanedithiol in ethanol indicates that the adsorption rate law is concentration dependent just as for alkanethiols. However, the rate of adsorption is considerably faster than for simple alkanethiols.
