Aiding the development of self assembled monolayers as potential solutions to problems such as liquid repellency, biocompatibility, adhesion and chemical resistance.
The simplicity and versatility of self assembled monolayer technology makes it attractive for research fields as diverse as biomaterials, electrochemical devices and microelectronics. Full non-destructive chemical characterization of these delicate systems requires a range of chemical and molecular sensitive probes. As systems typically only extend to a few nanometers, surface sensitivity is often a key requirement of the analytical approach. Thermo Scientific instruments enable researchers to characterize the structure and chemistry of these novel coatings.
