Abstract

The electronic structure and highest occupied to lowest unoccupied molecular orbital gap of undoped films of the molecular icosahedra of closo-1-phospha-7-carbadodecaborane (1,7-PCB10H11, meta-phosphacarborane) are reported. For 1,7-PCB10H11 adsorbed on Au and Ag, the Fermi level is placed closer to the lowest unoccupied molecular orbital than has been observed with closo-1-phospha-2-carbadodecaborane (1,2-PCB10H11, ortho-phosphacarborane) adsorbed on Au and Ag.
