Thiolated derivatives of dicarba-closo-dodecaborane, HS-C 2 B 10 H 11 (carboranethiol, CT), with icosahedral molecular structure are one of the promising candidates for self-assembled monolayer (SAM) applications. CT SAMs possess various advantages relative to their organic counterparts, such as high stability towards chemical, oxidative and thermal degradations as well as having fewer defects. In this study unfunctionalized CT SAMs (M1, M9) and carboxylic group functionalized CT SAMs (M1C, M9C) as well as their corresponding mixed SAMs were investigated on template stripped gold surfaces. Wetting properties of the SAMs were studied by using contact angle (CA) measurements. The ellipsometric thickness of all SAMs were found to be about 1-2 nm which is consistent with the reported thickness, measured by scanning tunneling microscopy (STM), in the literature. In mixed SAMs, surface fraction of M1 was found to be higher than its solution fraction in the M1:M1C and M1:M9C mixtures indicating the dominant component on the surface to be M1. Similar behavior was also observed for M9 such that surface fraction of M9 was higher than its solution fraction in the M9:M1C and M9:M9C mixtures indicating the dominancy of M9 molecules on the surface. M1 and M9 molecules bind to gold surface stronger than M1C and M9C molecules. In replacement experiments of CT SAMs, M1 molecules were found to replace M9C faster than M9C replaces M1 on template stripped gold surface. Replacement experiments of CT SAMs on silver surface were also performed. It was found that M9C molecules bind to silver surfaces through carboxylic groups rather than the thiol group.

A theoretical study on certain iron-sulfur and iron-selenium clusters
Turker, L; Erkoç, Şakir (Elsevier BV, 2003-04-04)
[Fe4S4], [Fe4S3Se] and [Fe4Se4] type iron-sulfur and iron-sulfur-selenium and iron-selenium clusters, all having four cysteinyl moieties as ligands have been considered for ab initio quantum chemical analysis at the level of 6-31G (RHF). All the structures are found to be stable and the stability of Se containing structures increases as the number of Se atoms increases. The inter frontier molecular orbital energy gaps and the HOMO energies follow the same order.
Investigation of Fluorine Atom Effect on Benzothiadiazole Acceptor Unit in Donor Acceptor Donor Systems
Çakal, Deniz; Akdağ, Akın; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar (The Electrochemical Society, 2019-07-12)
Synthesis of two new pi-conjugated monomers containing fluorine substituted benzothiadiazoles as acceptor units and 3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene (EDOT) as donor unit was accomplished by facilitating Stille cross-coupling reactions (4,7-bis(2,3-dihydrothieno[3,4-b][1,4] dioxin-5-yl)-5-fluorobenzo[c][1,2,5] thiadiazole (E2BTD-F) and 4,7-bis(2,3-dihydrothieno [3,4-b][1,4] dioxin-5-yl)-5,6-difluorobenzo[c][1,2,5] thiadiazole (E2BTD-2F)). NMR and HRMS spectra of newly synthesized compounds are in agreement with th...
Functional Group Effects on the Electrochemical Properties of Carboranethiol Monolayers on Au(111) As Studied by Density Functional Theory: Implications for Organic Electronics
Yortanli, Merve; Danışman, Mehmet Fatih; Mete, Ersen (2022-08-01)
Positional isomers of dicarba-doso-dodecaboranethiols with various functional groups (-NO2, -CHO, -CONH2, -F, -Cl, and -OH) were considered on Au(111) forming (3 x 3) and (5 x 5) structures. Dispersion corrected density functional theory calculations reveal the influence of functional groups on the adsorption characteristics of these carboranethiols depending on the coverage. Functionalized molecules not only possess fascinating chemical and electronic properties but also show stronger chemisorption profile...
Mixed carboranethiol self-assembled monolayers on gold surfaces
Sohrabnia, Nima; Danışman, Mehmet Fatih; Yılmaz, Ayşen; Department of Chemistry (2017)
Thiolated derivatives of dicarba-closo-dodecaborane, HS-C2B10H11 (carboranethiols, CTs), with icosahedral molecular structure are one of the promising candidates for self-assembled monolayer (SAM) applications. CT SAMs possess various advantages relative to organic counterparts, such as high stability towards chemical, oxidative and thermal degradations as well as having fewer defects. In this study, pure and mixed SAMs of three different positional isomers of carboranethiols (namely M1, O1 and M9) on templ...
Novel Molecular Building Blocks Based on the Boradiazaindacene Chromophore: Applications in Fluorescent Metallosupramolecular Coordination Polymers
Bozdemir, Oe. Altan; Buyukcakir, Onur; AKKAYA, Engin Umut (Wiley, 2009-01-01)
We designed and synthesized novel boradiazaindacene (Bodipy) derivatives that are appropriately functionalized for metal-ion-mediated supramolecular polymerization. Thus, ligands for 2-terpyridyl-, 2,6-terpyridyl-. and bipyridyl-functionalized Bodipy dyes were synthesized through Sonogashira couplings. These fluorescent building blocks are responsive to metal ions in a stoichiometry-dependent manner. Octahedral coordinating metal ions such as Zn-II result in polymerization at a stoichiometry corresponding t...
