The interfacial thermal resistance of 11-mercaptoundecanol (-S(CH2)11OH) self-assembled monolayer (SAM) adsorbed on Au(111) substrate and water was investigated using nonequilibrium molecular dynamics simulations. The interfacial thermal resistance was found to be a half of that in the system which consists of 1-dodecanthiol (-S(CH2)11CH3) SAM adsorbed on Au(111) and toluene [Kikugawa G. et al., J. Chem. Phys. (2009)]. The effective thermal energy transfer originates from hydrogen-bond structure between the SAM and water molecules in spite of weak structurization of water molecules near the SAM surface.
