Selective hydrogen bond disruption in adenine monolayer films by reaction with water

High-resolution X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy of two-dimensional films of adenine on a highly oriented pyrolitic graphite [0 0 0 1] surface reveal bonding changes induced by exposure to water. The hydrogen-bond interactions between adenine molecules were replaced by adenine-water hydrogen bonds in a stepwise pattern. This reaction destroyed the film network and changed the chemical state of the nitrogen sites. The reaction with water molecules affected both the donor and acceptor states of the oxygen atoms, as compared to those in water.
