Applications
1-Hexadecanethiol is used in the study of nanoparticles and self-assembled monolayers. It is also used to prepare thiol-functionalized 1.5 nm gold nanoparticles via a ligand exchange process with triphenylphosphine-stabilized nanoparticles and in the formation of hydrophobic self-assembled monolayers (SAMs). Due to the length of the alkane chain, the resulting monolayer is highly ordered. 1-Hexadecanethiol is also employed in different fields such as biomedicine, chemical industry, also used in electroplating industry and chemical auxiliaries.

Solubility
Soluble in methanol, benzene, ether, acetone and ethyl acetate. Not miscible or difficult to mix in water.

Notes
Store in cool place. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Containers which are opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Store under inert gas. It is sensitive to air. Incompatible with oxidizing agents.
