Molecular self-assembled of surfactant viologen are of recent interest because they can from functional electroeds as well as micellar assemblies. which can be profitably utilized for display devices. photoelectrochemical studies and electrocatalysis as electron acceptor or electron mediator[1-3]. Fromherz et al studied the se1f-assembly of thiol and disulfide derivatives of viologens bearing long n-alkyl chains on Au electrode surface[4]. In this study, the electrochemical behavior of self-assembled viologen monolayer has been investigated with QCM, which has been known as nano-gram order mass detector. The self-assembly process of viologen was monitored using resonant frequency$({\Delta}F)$ and resonant resistance(R). The redox process of viologen was observed with resonant frequency$({\Delta}F)$.
