ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1021/ja056324a||Abstract:||Electron transferal the molecule-metal interface of self-assembled monolayers of 1,1′;4′,1″-terphenyl-4″-thiol (BBB) and its partially fluorinated counterpart (BFF: p-thiophenyl-nonafluorobiphenyl) on Au(111) is investigated by core-hole clock spectroscopy. Ultrafast electron transfer at the BBB/Au(111) interface in the low-femtosecond regime (on the same time scale as the C 1s core-hole lifetime, ∼6 fs) was observed. In contrast, for BFF/Au(111), the interface electron transfer was forbidden during the core-hole decay. This strongly suggests that fluorination of phenyl rings significantly enhances the localization of the excited electrons in the LUMO. © 2006 American Chemical Society.||Source Title:||Journal of the American Chemical Society||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/76017||ISSN:||00027863||DOI:||10.1021/ja056324a|
