Abstract. We report on a novel kind of self-assembling monolayer (SAM) consisting of large organic molecules on a bimetallic surface. Propylbenzoat reacts with a monoatomically thin rubidium (Rb) layer on a chromium (Cr) film. The interaction between propylbenzoat and Rb and the strong interaction between Rb and Cr result in the formation of a SAM. The SAM can protect the underlying substrate from etching.

The model is studied within mean-field approximation. We show that both properties of...
