An ODS-SAM was successfully formed onto an ITO surface by CVD. The originally hydrophilic surface became highly hydrophobic with maximum water-contact angle reaching about 120°C. The final contact angles of the ODS-SAMs depended significantly on CVD temperature and treatment time. The surface hydrophobicity of ODS-SAM samples deposited at 100 and 150°C was superior to that of a sample treated at 50°C. It was determined that the CVD temperature of 150°C is optimum for ODS-SAM preparation.
