Self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) of carboxylic acids: an overview

Sushilkumar Jadhav
From the journal Open Chemistry

Abstract

The field of self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) of organic compounds on different substrates is of importance because it provides a suitable and efficient method of surface modification. The formation of robust, stable monolayers from carboxylic acids on two and three dimensional surfaces of different substrates have been reported. Carboxylic acids are promising class of organic compounds for monolayer formations where traditional alkanethiols or alkoxysilanes show limitations.
