Atomic oxidation of Coronene films grown on HOPG results in the formation of various surface species, CmHnOk, which subsequently can be desorbed as intact nm-sized graphene oxides, nano-GOs. Coronene films were grown at room temperature by low-energy cluster ion beam deposition (LECBD, C24H12+) and oxidized by exposing them to a beam of near-thermal atomic oxygen. The XPS-based analysis indicated that the oxidation of the C24H12 films proceeds predominantly via the formation of epoxides, ethers, and quinones. The mass spectrometric analysis of the subliming species revealed a strong dependency on the film thickness. The sublimation of thick oxidized Coronene films proceeds predominantly via the emission of rim-epoxides C24H12On (n≤ 7) . The sublimation from oxidized thin films, Θ≤ 2, exhibits lactones C23H10O2 and dilactones C22H8O4. The sublimation from Coronene monolayers deposited on a pre-oxidized basal plane is also dominated by the aforementioned oxides.
