Abstract

We investigated the interfacial electronic properties of self-assembled monolayers (SAM)-modified Au metal surface at elevated temperatures. We observed that the work functions of the Au metal surfaces modified with SAMs changed differently under elevated-temperature conditions based on the type of SAMs categorized by three different features based on chemical anchoring group, molecular backbone structure, and the direction of the dipole moment. The temperature-dependent work function of the SAM-modified Au metal could be explained in terms of the molecular binding energy and the thermal stability of the SAMs, which were investigated with thermal desorption spectroscopic measurements and were explained with molecular modeling. Our study will aid in understanding the electronic properties at the interface between SAMs and metals in organic electronic devices if an annealing treatment is applied.
