A self-assembled monolayer (SAM) consisting of a mixture of CH₃S–Au–SCH₃, CH₃S–Au–S(CH₂)₂CH₃, and CH₃(CH₂)₂S–Au–S(CH₂)₂CH₃ was studied systematically using scanning tunneling microscopy and density functional calculations. We find that the SAM is subjected to frequent changes at the molecular level on the time scale of ∼minutes. The presence of CH₃S or CH₃S–Au as a dissociation product of CH₃S–Au– ...
