Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from University Erlangen-Nurnberg, "In contrast to C-60, a submonolayer coverage of C60F48 results in long-range disorder of the underlying single ZnTPP layer and distortion of individual ZnTPP molecules. This is induced by substantial charge transfer at the organic-organic interface, revealed by the interface energetics from UPS. However, a second layer of ZnTPP prevents C60F48 guests from breaking the self-assembled porphyrin template."
According to the news editors, the research concluded: "This finding is important for understanding the growth behaviour of 'bottom-up' functional nanostructures involving strong donor-acceptor heterojunctions in molecular electronics."
