Abstract: 

We demonstrate the use of microwave radiation as a tool to accelerate the formation of perfluoroalkylsilane based self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) on silicon oxide surfaces. Surface coverage of these SAMs of monoreactive perfluoroalkylsilanes increased in proportion to the duration over which the solutions were heated by microwave radiation.
