|Abstract||The monolayers of 2-mercaptobenzothiazole (MBT) on polycrystalline Au and Ag films have been studied by surface-enhanced Raman (SERS) and X-ray photoelectron (XPS) spectroscopies. Whereas MBT adsorbs with its molecular plane flat on Ag, its plane is perpendicular on Au. This difference in adsorbate geometry is manifested as differences in the intensities of certain vibrational peaks in the Raman spectra. Ab initio molecular orbital (MO) calculations suggest that MBT adsorbs on Au in the thione form and on Ag in the thiol form. The monolayers are stable up to a temperature of 473 K, much higher than most of the self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) studied so far. The adsorption geometry does not undergo any significant change when the monolayers are heated, although minor changes are observed in the SER spectra of the Ag monolayer. Raman intensities of all the bands increase with heating, and the enhanced intensity is preserved even after cooling. This is attributed to monolayer-induced coalescence of gold islands leading to the formation of an extended self-assembly. XPS studies confirm chemisorption, although structural details are not manifested.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and 9 other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
