The immobilization of methylene blue (MB) on iodine-covered Au(111) is studied by electrochemical techniques, scanning tunneling microscopy (STM), Auger Electron Spectroscopy (AES), and Raman spectroscopy. Results show that MB species are efficiently adsorbed on the √3 × √3 R30° I lattice on Au(111). The electrochemical behavior of the adsorbed MB molecules is reversible, indicating a relatively fast electron transfer from the Au(111) surface to the immobilized MB species through the iodine layer. STM images with molecular resolution are consistent with adsorption of MB dimers on a √3 × √3 R30° I lattice placed atop of the Au(111) substrate. Results are compared to those obtained for MB immobilized on Au(111) covered by Sn (n = 3–8) surface structures.
