Electrochemical formation and investigation of a self-assembled fullerene monolayer.
The formation and characterisation of a C(60) monolayer at the electrode|electrolyte interface has been studied by cyclic voltammetry, potential step chronoamperometry and ac voltammetry. The presence of the monolayer is evidenced by the presence of a very sharp peak P in the voltammogram, attributed to the faradaic phase formation of an ordered monolayer, and of a reduction post peak Q associated with the reduction of adsorbed species. The chronoamperograms exhibit a well-defined maximum, ch...Expand abstract
