This Letter describes the design of a self-assembled monolayer of alkanethiolates on gold that can releaseattachedgroupswhenanelectrical potential is applied to thegold. Thedesign isbasedonmonolayers that present a catechol orthoformate group that undergoes an irreversible two-electron oxidation with simultaneous release of the orthoformate substituent… CONTINUE READING
