We have studied surface transformations of two polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (pyrene and anthracene) covalently attached to the surfaces of modified quartz, indium tin-oxide (ITO) and gold. We applied two immobilization strategies. For quartz and ITO we prepared acid chloride terminated monolayers and reacted the acid chloride moieties with the amino groups of aminopyrene or aminoanthracene. For gold substrates, we self-assembled monolayers of 11-mercaptoundecanoic acid, transformed the carboxylic groups into interchain anhydrides, and then attached aminopyrene (or aminoanthracene) through the amide bonds.
