Abstract

UV polymerization of self-assembled monolayers of a novel carbazolyl-diacetylene (CDS9) chemisorbed on silver films was demonstrated by surface plasmon resonance (SPR) and surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) experiments. SPR tests performed during UV exposure permitted one to observe the growth of the absorption coefficient, associated with the formation of the polymeric backbone. The Raman spectra of polymerized monolayers exhibited the bands associated with the CdC stretching modes of the conjugated backbone, typical of the blue and red polymeric phases usually present in polydiacetylenes, with a clear predominance of the red form. Moreover, the strong surface enhancement of the Raman band corresponding to the aromatic CdC stretching modes suggested that carbazolyl groups arrange nearly perpendicularly to the metal surface. In contrast, the absence of a SERS signal in the region of conjugated CtC bond stretchings confirmed a polymerization scheme with conjugated triple bonds nearly parallel to the plane of the metal.
