dc.description.abstractThis work demonstrates a new pathway to the direct on-surface fabrication of surface coatings by showing that application of a plasma can lead to dehalogenative coupling of small aromatic molecules at a catalytic surface. Specifically, we show that a room temperature, atmospheric pressure plasma can be used to fabricate a coating through a surface-confined dehalogenation reaction. Plasma treatments were performed using a dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) technique under pure nitrogen with a variety of power levels and durations. Samples were analysed by optical and helium ion microscopy (HIM), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), optical profilometry, and contact angle measurement. By varying the plasma parameters we could control the chemistry, morphology and roughness of the film. Surface wettability also varied with the plasma parameters, with high-dose plasmas leading to a hydrophobic surface with water contact angles up to 130°.
