A covalently assembled lnonolayer of 61-(p-hydroxyphenylmethallo)fullerene [C-60] molecules has been synthesized. Both static and dynamic contact angle measurements show that the hydrophobic character increases upon the fullerene linkage. Atomic force microscopy lithography shows that the depth of the monolayer is about 19 Angstrom UV-vis spectra are well-tuned with the presence of the fullerene on the silica surfaces. The surface atomic composition, investigated by angle-resolved X-ray photoelectron spectra, shows a monotonic increase of the carbon signal upon decreasing the photoelectron takeoff angles, thus confirming the upper layer nature of this signal. Room-temperature photoluminescence spectra, under controlled atmosphere, show that the oxygen presence influences considerably the luminescence quantum yield.
