Self-assembled monolayers of perfluoroterphenyl-substituted alkanethiols: specific characteristics and odd-even effects
Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys. 12, 12123 (2010)
Self-assembled monolayers of perfluorinated arenes can open new possibilities for organic electronics. Although the molecules are helical and more rigid than the non-fluorinated analogues, they still form dense monolayers showing the well-known odd-even effects.
