    Abstract : A number of different thiols and disulfides self-assembled on polycrystalline gold surfaceshave been studied using mainly AlKα-excited X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS), but also Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR), Ellipsometry, Contact Angles (CA), Voltammetry and Temperature Programmed Desorption (TPD).Evidence is presented in this thesis that the presence of disulfides in long chain thiolatefilms reported earlier is due to radiation damage from the X-rays used in the X-rayspectroscopies.
