Abstract: a b s t r a c tThe first theoretical and experimental study is reported of the hybrid species resulting from a selected series of differently substituted ferrocenes anchored on Si(111) with their lateral arm. Si functionalized wafers were produced following extramild conditions, by exposing H-Si(111) surfaces, brought in contact with each molecular species under controlled conditions, to visible-light. It has been reported in the literature that vinylferrocene molecules adopt preferential arrangements when ex…
