The formation and organization of self-assembled monolayers of alkanethiols and ω-mercaptocarboxylic acids on mercury surfaces have been studied. The organization process was examined in-situ and ex-situ by cyclic voltammetry. Charging current measurements as well as electron transfer experiments with Ru(NH3)3+/2+6 indicate that the adsorption of homologous alkanethiols and ω-mercaptocarboxylic acids on mercury is followed by the formation of a densely packed array.
