THE ELECTROCHEMICAL STUDY OF SELF-ASSEMBLED 1,3-PROPANEDITHIOL ON GOLD
The electrochemical behaviors of bare/dithiol-modified gold electrode were studied in the PBS solution with/without dithiols. A pair of current peaks between -1.4 and -0.5 V is related to dithiol adsorption or re-adsorption. An oxidative peak at 0.37 V accompanied by a slight peak at 0.03 V is observed between -0.5 and 0.7 V for the bare gold electrode in the thiol solution, which is due to the formation of bilayer. When the potential is scanned to a very positive value at 1.2 V, a new oxidative peak at 1.07 V appears for the bare gold electrode in the dithiol solution or the PBS solution. The assembled dithiols are desorbed, and gold surface is exposed. The study indicates that the 1,3-propanedithiol modified electrodes should be used during the potential range of -0.8 to 0.8 V to keep the assembled layer stable.
