    • Adsorption energies of benzene on close packed transition metal surfaces using the random phase approximation 

      Garrido Torres, Jose Antonio; Ramberger, Benjamin; Fruchtl, Herbert Anton; Schaub, Renald; Kresse, Georg (2017-11-22) - Journal article
      The adsorption energy of benzene on various metal substrates is predicted using the random phase approximation (RPA) for the correlation energy. Agreement with available experimental data is systematically better than 10% ...
    • Adsorption of a dihydro-TTF derivative on Au(111) via a thiolate bonding complex to gold adatoms 

      Jethwa, Siddharth Janak; Grillo, Federico; Fruchtl, Herbert Anton; Simpson, Grant James; Treanor, Michael John; Schaub, Renald; Francis, Stephen Malcolm; Richardson, Neville V; Aitken, R Alan (2014-08-05) - Journal article
      A dihydro-TTF derivative with four acetyl-protected thiol ligands was synthesised and adsorbed on Au(111) under UHV conditions. Scanning Tunnelling Microscopy (STM) and Infrared (IR) spectroscopy show that self-organised ...
    • Coupling Epitaxy, Chemical Bonding, and Work Function at the Local Scale in Transition Metal-Supported Graphene 

      Wang, Bo; Caffio, Marco; Bromley, Catherine; Fruchtl, Herbert Anton; Schaub, Renald (2010-10) - Journal article
      Resonance tunneling spectroscopy and density functional theory calculations are employed to explore local variations in the electronic surface potential of a single graphene layer grown on Rh(111). A work function modulation ...
    • Formation of bioinorganic complexes by the corrosive adsorption of (S)-proline on Ni/Au(111) 

      Green, Riho Thomas Seljamae; Simpson, Grant James; Grillo, Federico; Greenwood, John; Francis, Stephen Malcolm; Schaub, Renald; Gano, Jerome E.; Fruchtl, Herbert Anton; Lacovig, Paolo; Baddeley, Christopher John (2015-01-13) - Journal article
      Nickel nanoparticles modified by the adsorption of chiral amino acids are known to be effective enantioselective heterogeneous catalysts. The leaching of nickel by amino acids has a number of potential effects including ...
    • New class of metal bound molecular switches involving H-tautomerism 

      Simpson, Grant James; Hogan, Simon William Leslie; Caffio, Marco; Adams, Christopher J.; Fruchtl, Herbert Anton; van Mourik, Tanja; Schaub, Renald (2014-01-28) - Journal article
      A potential end-point in the miniaturization of electronic devices lies in the field of molecular electronics, where molecules perform the function of single components. To date, hydrogen tautomerism in unimolecular switches ...
    • Self-assembled monolayers of oligophenylenecarboxylic acids on silver formed at the liquid-solid interface 

      Aitchison, Hannah; Lu, Hao; Hogan, Simon William Leslie; Fruchtl, Herbert Anton; Cebula, Izabela; Zharnikov, Michael; Buck, Manfred (2016-09-20) - Journal article
      A series of para-oligophenylene mono- and dicarboxylic acids (R-(C6H4)nCOOH, n = 1-3, R = H,COOH) was studied. Adsorbed on Au(111)/mica modified by an underpotential deposited bilayer of Ag, the self-assembled monolayers ...
    • Site selectivity in the growth of copper islands on Au (111) 

      Grillo, Federico; Fruchtl, Herbert Anton; Francis, Stephen Malcolm; Richardson, Neville V (2011) - Journal article
      The room temperature deposition of copper onto a Au(111)-(22×√3) reconstructed surface has been investigated using scanning tunnelling microscopy (STM), up to a copper coverage of approximately 0.7 monolayer (ML). At ...
    • Two-dimensional self-assembly of benzotriazole on an inert substrate 

      Grillo, Federico; Garrido Torres, Jose Antonio; Treanor, Michael John; Larrea, Christian Rodriguez; Goetze, Jan Philipp; Lacovig, Paolo; Fruchtl, Herbert Anton; Schaub, Renald; Richardson, Neville V (2016-05-07) - Journal article
      The ultra-high vacuum (UHV) room temperature adsorption of benzotriazole (BTAH), a well-known corrosion inhibitor for copper, has been investigated on the pristine Au(111) surface using a combination of surface sensitive ...
