    • Nanoscale films covalently attached to conducting substrates: structure and dynamic behaviour of the layers 

      Downard, A.J. (University of Canterbury. Chemistry., 2009)
      Nanoscale organic films, typically 1-5 nm thick, can be grafted to conducting substrates by the reduction of aryldiazonium salts. The grafting procedure results in covalent attachment of the film to the substrate, through ...
