- ... Single-atomic-layer gold nanosheets have been synthesized on the Au(111) substrate guided by vertical molecular channels confined by an octanethiolate (OT) surfactant, in great contrast to the typical hexagonal or triangular islands observed in homoepitaxy on the (111) plane of fcc metals. This anomalous growth mode shows a strong dependence on the coverage of the surfactant and hence demonstrates ...
