High impact information on Octylthiol

  • The STM images showed that the catalyst-bearing thiolates are distributed statistically on the surface and that the ordered structure of the n-octanethiolate SAM can be retained during incorporation of the catalyst-bearing thiols using the place-exchange methodology [1].
  • A biomimetic bilayer membrane immobilizing uricase (urate oxidase; EC (UOx) and a redox agent of 1-methoxy-5-methylphenazinium (MMP) was fabricated on an Au electrode substrate with use of the Au substrate coated with a self-assembled monolayer of n-octanethiolate (OT/Au) and L-alpha-phosphatidylcholine beta-oleoyl-gamma-palmitoyl (PCOP) [2].
  • The self-assembly of ethanethiol (C(2)) and 1-octanethiol (C(8)) on Ag-Au(111) alloy films was studied by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), cyclic voltammetry (CV), and scanning tunneling microscopy (STM), to illuminate how the monolayer structures and chemisorption-induced substrate defect structures depend on the alloy composition [3].
