Photo-oxidative doping in $$pi$$-conjugated zig-zag chain of carbon atoms with sulfur-functional group

Ikeura, Hiromi*; Sekiguchi, Tetsuhiro 

Photo-oxidative doping processes were studied for the trans-polyacetylene (PA) backbone with the -SCH$$_{3}$$ side group as a chemically representative of the S-functionalized zig-zag graphene nanoribbon edge. Sulfur K-edge X-ray absorption near edge structure (XANES) spectroscopy indicates that photochemical reaction of S-CH$$_{3}$$ with atmospheric O$$_{2}$$ forms selectively oxidized products such as -S(O)CH$$_{3}$$ and -SO$$_{3}$$$$^{-}$$ bound to the (PA) backbone. Using the correlation between the oxidation states of sulfur and the XANES peak positions, the partial charge distribution of CH$$_{3}$$S$$^{delta+}$$ -PA$$^{delta-}$$ has been estimated. The results can provide some strategy for area-selective and controllable doping processes of atomic-scale molecular systems with the assistance of UV light.
