Description

Application

Used to prepare thiol-functionalized 1.5 nm gold nanoparticles via a ligand exchange process with triphenylphosphine-stabilized nanoparticles. Used in the formation of hydrophobic SAMs. Due to the length of the alkane chain, the resulting monolayer is highly ordered.

Packaging

500 mg in glass bottle
