Description

General description

6-(Ferrocenyl)hexanethiol (FHT) is a ferrocenyl alkanethiol that forms a self-assembled monolayer (SAM) where ferrocenyl linkages can facilitate the electron exchange between the coating and the substrate.

Application

FHT can be used as a SAM on gold substrates to act as an electron transport medium which can be potentially used in bio-electrochemical devices. FHT may also be used to functionalize graphene coated gold surfaces by forming gold-thiol linkages which can be used as electron transfer mediators.

Packaging

250 mg in glass bottle
