Description

General description

12-Mercaptododecanoic acid (MDA) is a carboxylic acid terminated thiol that forms self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) on a variety of surfaces. It provides a blocking effect and immobilizes the surface atoms.

Application

MDA can functionalize gold nanoparticles which can form screen printed electrodes for electrochemical detection. It can also form ligands with cadmium selenium (CdSe) quantum dots (ODs) which can be deposited on titanium oxide(TiO2) based films.

Packaging

1 g in glass bottle
