Structure, Wettability, and Electrochemical Barrier Properties of Self-Assembled Monolayers Prepared from Partially Fluorinated Hexadecanethiols

We report the preparation and characterization of self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) derived from the adsorption of partially fluorinated hexadecanethiols (CF3(CF2)n-1(CH2)mSH; n = 2, 4, 6, and 8; n + m = 16) onto the surface of gold. The quality of the SAMs, as measured by electrochemical impedance s...
