An electroactive substrate that reveals aldehyde groups in response to electrical potentials was described. It was shown that this approach can be used to activate a substrate for immobilization of a ligand and then used in subsequent experiments. The approach reveals a functional group that does not require labelling of a ligand. This example also serves to demonstrate a molecular strategy for creating dynamic substrates.
