Tune it with light! Self-assembled monolayers on gold based on a chemisorbed novel azobenzene derivative with a perfluorinated terminal phenyl ring are prepared. The modified substrate shows a significant work function increase compared to the bare metal. The photo-conversion between trans and cis isomers chemisorbed on the surface shows great perspectives for being an accessible route to tune the gold properties by means of light.
