Abstract

The invention described here expands the formation and use of self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) of alkanethiols to Pt and Ir substrates. SAMs can be formed on Pt and Ir surfaces either from solution or by printing, and these films can be used to modify the surface properties of these metals.
