Holey Graphene as a Weed Barrier for Molecules.


PMID 26426746

Abstract

We demonstrate the use of "holey" graphene as a mask against molecular adsorption. Prepared porous graphene is transferred onto a Au{111} substrate, annealed, and then exposed to dilute solutions of 1-adamantanethiol. In the pores of the graphene lattice, we find islands of organized, self-assembled molecules. The bare Au in the pores can be regenerated by postdeposition annealing, and new molecules can be self-assembled in the exposed Au region. Graphene can serve as a robust, patternable mask against the deposition of self-assembled monolayers.
