Self assembled monolayers (SAMs) on metallic surfaces (gold and graphene) for electronic applications

Author affiliations

Abstract

Self-assembled monolayers have attracted much attention recently due to their ease of formation and affinity to metal substrates. This report reviews research conducted over the last decade into the science and applications of self-assembled monolayers on the metallic surfaces gold and graphene. The focus is on the commonly studied thiols on gold system, as well as a variety of different molecular species on graphene. Recent investigations on the assembly process are discussed and a number of electronic applications are described. The use of self-assembled monolayers with graphene is also discussed with a focus on future applications.
