Interfacial electronic structures of metallic nanoparticles on bare- and functionalized-Au nanoisland templates, and on transition metal oxide supports

  • Published : 2011.02.09


We present the interfacial electronic structures of electrodeposited Cu and Fe on bare and 1,4-phenylene diisocyanide (PDI)-functionalized Au nanoisland templates (NITs), and Au and Ag nanoparticles on transition metal oxide supports. Our discussion is based on the depth-profiling X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM).
