Abstract: Self-assembled functionalized aromatic thiols (oligophenylenes composed of building blocks of dimethoxy-substituted phenylenes, perfluoro-substituted phenylenes, and a terminal thiol group) were used to tune the hole injection barrier (Δh) of copper(II) phthalocyanine (CuPc) on Au(111). Synchrotron-based high-resolution photoemission spectroscopy study reveals a significant reduction of Δh by as much as 0.75 eV from Δh = 0.9 eV for CuPc/Au(111) to Δh = 0.15 eV for CuPc/BOF/Au(111), where BOF represents 4-pentafluorophenyl-1-(p-thiophenyl)- 2,5-dimethoxybenzene. The delocalized π orbitals of these functionalized aromatic thiols greatly facilitate effective charge transfer (hole or electron) across the SAM interface as compared to alkanethiols, hence making this novel interface modification scheme a simple and effective way to tune the hole injection barrier. This method has potential applications in molecular electronics, organic light-emitting diodes (OLED), organic field-effect transistors (OFETs), and organic solar cells. © 2006 American Chemical Society.
