This research investigated the covalent modification of self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) formed on gold substrates. Specifically, this work explored the esterification and amidification reactions of alkanethiol SAMs that contained even or odd number of methylene groups. The reaction of aliphatic and aromatic alcohols and amines was explored to test the versatility of the reaction and the influence of the alkyl chain parity on the expected outcomes.
