Thiols terminated in vinyl group has recently gained lot’s of scientific attention and have been used for immobilization of gold nanoparticles onto silicon surfaces (Chem. Eur. J.2006, 12, 314-323,), in studying electron tunneling through SAMs (Nano Lett.2006, 6, 2873-2876), in SAM-supported olefin cross-metathesis reactions (Langmuir 2003, 19, 8141-8143) and as components of biosensors (Can. J. Chem.1999, 77, 1678-1689). Great buy from the sole provider of this versatile class of surface modification compounds!
