Abstract

A molecular beam of europium-cyclooctatetraene sandwich nanowires Eu n(COT) m was produced by a laser vaporization synthesis method. The formation mechanism of the nanowires was quantitatively revealed by photoelectron and photoionization spectroscopies of the Eu-COT species, together with supporting theoretical calculations. From these results, it is confirmed that growth processes extending the length of Eu-COT nanowires involve a series of elementary reactions in which efficient charge transfer occurs at the terminal reaction sites. In every elementary step, the reaction proceeds between one reactant having low ionization energy and the other reactant having high electron affinity, probably via a "harpoon" mechanism.
