In the case of reactive metals, on adsorption of organic chalcogenide molecules like thiols, chalcogenide-C bond scission can occur. Thus, the high reactivity of Pd leads to initial thiol dissociation and formation of a complex PdS interface layer on which thereafter thiol self-assembled monolayers (SAM) can form. In this context we investigate in detail the adsorption of S, Se, alkanethiols, and aromatic dithiols on Pd by photoemission with synchrotron radiation. The nature of the PdS and PdSe layers formed is studied, and thiol adsorption on Pd(111), PdS, and PdSe surfaces is investigated, along with interface characteristics. After initial strong sulfidation (selenization) in Na2S(Se) solutions, a well-ordered surface PdS (PdSe) layer can be obtained by annealing. For S, annealing leads to formation of a PdS (root 7 x root 7)R19.1 degrees layer, whereas for Se, large domains of this structure are formed. Experiments suggest that in thiol adsorption the Pdsulfide interface is not simply similar to the (root 7 x root 7)R19.1 degrees PdS layer but that modifications in this surface sulfide layer are induced. A similar effect is observed on the selenide interface layer. In addition, 1,4-benzenedimethanethiol adsorption on Pd is investigated with the aim of creation of thiol-terminated dithiol molecular layers. Unlike the case of surfaces like Au, no clear indication of a standing-up, thiol-terminated SAM was found. X-ray radiation damage effects are reported.
