Abstract

(Equation Presented). A series of ferrocene-based electroactive molecules (EAMs) containing maleimide and disulfide groups in different asymmetric and branched architectures were designed and synthesized. Stable monolayers of each EAM on gold electrodes were confirmed by cyclic voltammetry. Importantly, these EAMs expand the repertoire of monolayer building blocks amenable to modular biofunctionalization for applications in electrochemical biosensor fabrication.
