Description

General description

16-Mercaptohexadecanoic acid (MHA) is an alkanethiol with long chained −CH2 groups, which form a self-assembled monolayer (SAM) on a wide range of substrates.

Application

MHA forms a SAM on gold surfaces by pen lithography (PPL). It finds potential application in bio-engineering. It can also be used to functionalize gold-dypiramids, which can fabricate nano-resonators for shell-isolated nanoparticle enhanced Raman-spectroscopy (SHINERS).

Packaging

250 mg in glass insert
