A very mild method has been developed to obtain covalently attached alkyl monolayers from the attachment of 1-alkynes onto hydrogen-terminated silicon surfaces at room temperature in the dark. Apart from being the mildest method reported so far for the preparation of such monolayers, their quality, as indicated by water contact angles, XPS, and infrared spectroscopy, equals within experimental error that of the best reported alkyl monolayers on silicon.
