Application

MOA is a used as a SAM for surface modification of gold electrodes for quartz crystal microbalance (QCMB) measurement. It may be used as a monolayer that facilitates ferritin absorption on gold electrodes for uptake of excess iron in the cell. It may also be used for preparation of nitric oxide based gold nanoparticles (NO-AuNPs) for macrophage photo-thermal therapy under NIR irradiation.

General description

8-mercaptooctanoic acid (MOA) forms a self-assembled monolayer (SAM) on the surface of nanoparticles. MOA consists of thiol and carboxylic groups which helps in the surface treatment of different nanoparticles.
