  • Self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) having surfaces terminated in the following functional groups: -CH{sub 3}, -OH, -COOH, and (COO{sup -}){sub 2}Cu{sup 2+} (MUA-Cu{sup 2+}) have been prepared and examined as potential chemically sensitive interfaces. Mass measurements made using surface acoustic wave (SAW) devices indicate that these surfaces display different degrees of selectivity and sensitivity to a range of analytes. The response of the MUA-Cu{sup 2+} SAM to the nerve-agent simulant diisopropyl methylphosphonate (DIMP) is particularly intriguing. Exposure of this surface to 50%-of-saturation DIMP yields a surface concentration equivalent to about 20 DIMP monolayers. Such a high surface concentration in equilibrium with amore » much lower-than-saturation vapor pressure has not previously been observed. Newly developed analytical tools have made it possible to measure the infrared spectrum of the chemically receptive surface during analyte dosing. Coupled with in-situ SAW/ellipsometry measurements, which permit simultaneous measurement of mass and thickness with nanogram and Angstrom resolution, respectively, it has been possibly to develop a model for the surface chemistry leading to the unusual behavior of this system. The results indicate that DIMP interacts strongly with surface-confined Cu{sup 2+} adduct that nucleates growth of semi-ordered crystallites having substantially lower vapor pressure than the liquid.« less
  • We have conducted a molecular dynamics (MD) simulation study of water confined between methyl-terminated and carboxyl-terminated alkylsilane self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) on amorphous silica substrates. In doing so, we have investigated the dynamic and structural behavior of the water molecules when compressed to loads ranging from 20 to 950 MPa for two different amounts of water (27 and 58 water molecules/nm{sup 2}). Within the studied range of loads, we observe that no water molecules penetrate the hydrophobic region of the carboxyl-terminated SAMs. However, we observe that at loads larger than 150 MPa water molecules penetrate the methyl-terminated SAMs and form hydrogen-bondedmore » chains that connect to the bulk water. The diffusion coefficient of the water molecules decreases as the water film becomes thinner and pressure increases. When compared to bulk diffusion coefficients of water molecules at the various loads, we found that the diffusion coefficients for the systems with 27 water molecules/nm{sup 2} are reduced by a factor of 20 at low loads and by a factor of 40 at high loads, while the diffusion coefficients for the systems with 58 water molecules/nm{sup 2} are reduced by a factor of 25 at all loads.« less
