This paper outlines a general synthetic route to alkanethiols useful in forming self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) starting from amines, RNH 2 , and converting them, via α-chloroamides RNHCOCH 2 Cl, to thiols having the structure RNHCOCH 2 SH. The wettabilities (estimated from contact angles of water and hexadecane) and the thicknesses (as measured by ellipsometry and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, XPS) of SAMs having an amide moiety β to Au/thiolate were similar to those of SAMs of… Expand
