Abstract

Due to fine control of concentration of surface functional groups by changing concentration of the surfactant solution on which the mixed monolayers are adsorbed, self-assembled monolayers (SAMs), particularly that of alkanethiolates on gold, can be used as models for studying surface phenomena such as wetting, adhesion and friction. Understanding these phenomena at the molecular level can provide guidance to a variety of technologies involving surface chemistry. For instance, the relationship between surface adhesion and concentration and nature of surface chemical functionalities can be established by using SAMs as models, making it possible to engineer surface of polymers which have found wide applications.
