New Materials Approaches to Tribology: Theory and Applications
We report a surface science study of fluorinated and hydrogenated ethers adsorbed at a metal surface. Fluorinated ethers bond less strongly to ruthenium surfaces than the hydrogenated analogs, both for atomically-smooth and atomically-rough surfaces. For the hydrogenated ethers, 0.03 to 0.17 monolayers undergo decomposition, while fluorinated ethers do not decompose significantly.
