The coadsorption of metals and molecular icosahedra on Cu(100)
Date of Original Version
We have studied the coadsorption of two quite different metals with thin films of the molecular icosahedron orthocarborane (C2B10H12). The monovalent metal Na forms a bulk metal-icosahedral complex, while the divalent metal Hg does not intermix with the orthocarborane and instead forms islands at the orthocarborane-copper interface. This behavior is reminiscent of metal doping of fullerides. © 1995.
