Characterization of Self-Assembled Monolayers from Lithium Dialkyldithiocarbamate Salts

We report the formation of self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) onto gold substrates by exposure to lithium dialkyldithiocarbamate salts [(Li+(R2DTC-), where R = n-propyl, n-butyl, n-octyl, n-decyl, n-dodecyl, or n-octadecyl] in ethanol or methylene chloride. The crystallinity and composition of the mon...
