Silver nanospirals with strong chiroptical activity (characterized by circular dichroism) are grafted with achiral alkyl ligands, resulting in a weakening of the chiroptical activity. The chiroptical weakening is exacerbated with increasing bond energy of the Ag-ligand contacts, which is ascribed...

Separated domains of 1-dodecanethiolate were fabricated via solution displacement of preformed 1-adamantanethiolate self-assembled monolayers on Au{111}. Subsequently, the 1-adamantanethiolate domains were desorbed selectively, and the substrate was exposed to a 1-octanethiol solution, creating artificially separated self-assembled monolayers of 1-dodecanethiolate and...

We have used alkanethiol self-assembly and dithiol layer-by-layer (LBL) self-assembly processes to prepare an Au nanoparticle (NP)-coated open tubular capillary electrochromatography (OTCEC) column for the separation of three neutral steroid drugs (testosterone, progesterone, and testosterone propionate). The CEC column was...
