Abstract

HSC11EG3OH (1) is an important component for formation of protein-resistant self-assembled monolayers on gold. Chromatography of small molecules containing oligoethylene units, such as 1 and its synthetic intermediates, are typically complicated by smearing on TLC, making separation tedious. We have developed a convenient modification for synthesis of 1 by using a UV-visible intermediate facilitating column chromatography of the desired compound.
