Description

General description

1-Hexadecanethiol (HDT) is an alkanethiol that forms a self-assembled monolayer (SAM) by linking sulfur ions with the surface atoms. The methyl groups form a network with the aqueous phase that allows the formation of hydrophobic surfaces with low surface tension.

Application

HDT functionalized gold surfaces with pentacene form a low injection barrier, which can be used to enhance the performance of pentacene organic field effect transistors (OFETs). It can also be used to immobilize silver nanoparticles (AgNPs), synthesized by reducing silver phosphine precursors.

Packaging

500 mg in glass bottle
