We have synthesized a high electrically conductive 4-(2-(4-(acetylthio)phenyl)ethynyl)benzoic acid (APBA) with a conjugated aromatic structure as a bio fix linker, and then fabricated APBA self-assembled monolayer (SAM) with a self-assembly technique. The structure of the prepared APBA SAM was studied and electrochemical properties of APBA SAM immobilized with a ferrocene molecule were investigated. Also, we have examined the molecular orientation and oxidation-reduction redox characteristics of the mixed SAM consisting of APBA and butanethiol (BT) with a X-ray photo electron spectroscopy (XPS) and cyclicvoltammetry, respectively. Electrochemical activity of the mixed SAM was increased with increasing the mixed time. Especially, the maximum redox current was obtained at a mixed time of 36 hrs.
