The passivation of metal electrodes covered by self-assembled monolayers of long-chain thiols is well known. The disappearance of the voltammetric peak of redox species in solution is a classical test for the formation of full layers of thiols. Similar studies on semiconductors are still very limited. We used silver surfaces covered by an ultrathin layer of CdS as substrate for self-assembling of n-hexadecanethiol (C16SH), and we compared the experimental results with those obtained by using the bare silver surface as substrate. The strong insulating effect of C16SH deposited on Ag(III) is shown by the inhibition of the voltammetric peak of Ru(NH3)63+/2+. On the contrary, the voltammogram obtained on CdS-covered Ag(III) is very similar to that obtained on the bare Ag(III) electrode, thus suggesting that the presence of CdS exerts a contrasting effect on the passivation of the silver electrode. A crucial point of our work is to demonstrate the effective formation of C16SH monolayers on Ag(III) covered by CdS. The formation of full layers of C16SH was strongly suggested by the inhibition of the stripping peak of Cd from the CdS deposit covered by C16SH. The presence of C16SH was confirmed by electrochemical quartz crystal microbalance (EQCM) measurements as well as by Auger electron spectroscopy (AES) analysis.

Electroplating processes are widely employed in industrial environments for a large variety of metallic coatings, ranging from technological to decorative applications. Even if the galvanic electrodeposition is certainly a mature technology, new concepts, novel applications, environmental legislation and the new material requirements for next-generation devices make the scientific research in this field still very active. This review focuses mostly at the decorative and wearable applications, and aims to create a bridge between the past knowledge and the future direction that this process, i.e., electrodeposition, is taking. Both the theoretical fundamentals as well as some of the most widespread practical applications—limited to metallic and alloy coatings—are explored. As an integral part of the industrial process, we take a look at the main techniques thought which the quality control of deposits and surfaces is carried out. Finally, global industrial performance and research directions towards sustainable solutions are highlighted.

The standard oxidation potential and the electron transfer (ET) rate constants of two silicon-based hybrid interfaces, Si(111)/organic-spacer/Ferrocene, are theoretically calculated and assessed. The dynamics of the electrochemical driven ET process is modeled in terms of the classical donor/acceptor scheme within the framework of "Marcus theory". The ET rate constants, k E T , are determined following calculation of the electron transfer matrix element, V R P , together with the knowledge of the energy of the neutral and charge separated systems. The recently introduced Constrained Density Functional Theory (CDFT) method is exploited to optimize the structure and determine the energy of the charge separated species. Calculated ET rate constants are k E T = 77.8 s - 1 and k E T = 1.3 × 10 - 9 s - 1 , in the case of the short and long organic-spacer, respectively.
