Paper Abstract

The monolayer formation of photoswitchable self-assembled monolayers of azobenzene-functionalized molecules was studied in situ and in real time by optical second-harmonic generation. Especially the influence of the isomerization state during the adsorption process was measured in our experiments. As will be shown, the isomerization state has a significant influence on the adsorption process of the investigated molecules. Based on the results of the second-harmonic generation experiments the kinetics of the adsorption process was determined.
