Abstract

Gas-phase synthesized vanadium-mesitylene 1:2 V(mes)2 cluster cations were size-selectively deposited onto a long-chain alkanethiolate selfassembled monolayer-coated gold substrate under ultrahigh vacuum conditions. Examination of the resultant clusters was conducted by infrared reflection absorption spectroscopy (IRAS) and temperature programmed desorption (TPD), showing the clusters molecularly adsorbed and maintaining a sandwich structure on the substrate.
