General description

1-Hexanethiol is an organothiol that forms a self-assembled monolayer (SAM) on a variety of nanoparticles. It consists of S head group, CH2 alkane chain, and CH3 terminal group.

Application

1-Hexanethiol can be mixed with 4-mercaptophenol to functionalize gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) for use as chemi-resistive sensors. It can also form a protective coating against oxidative reactions and contaminating layers on copper surfaces. It can also be used as a thiol based ligand which finds potential application as a semiconducting material in thin film solar cells.
It is used to tune the electrical characteristics in networked carbon nanotube field-effect transistors. It is also used as a monolayer on copper surfaces to retard surface oxidation during exposure to the environment which can then be desorbed effectively with an annealing step in inert N2 to provide a clean Cu surface.

Micro and Nanometer Scale Photopatterning of Self-Assembled Monolayers

Self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) have attracted enormous interest for a wide variety of applications in micro- and nano-technology. In this article, we compare the benefits of three different classes of SAM systems (alkylthiolates on gold).

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
