Abstract

The chemical modification of an sp hybridized carbon surface in a controllable manner is very challenging but also crucial for many applications. An inverse electron demand Diels-Alder (IEDDA) reaction using microcontact printing technique is introduced to spatially control the modification of a highly ordered pyrolytic graphite (HOPG) surface under ambient conditions. The covalent modification was characterized by Raman spectroscopy, XPS, and SECM. Tetrazine derivatives can effectively react with an HOPG surface and with microcontact printing methods resulting in spatially patterned surfaces being produced with micrometer-scale resolution.
