Isolipoic acid, a symmetrical and achiral isomer of the commonly-used alpha-lipoic acid, has previously been overlooked as a tether group for the formation of self-assembled monolayers (SAMs). Here its ready synthesis through a new route and its functionalization with ferrocenyl groups for redox-active SAM formation on gold electrodes are described.
