    The results presented in this thesis demonstrate the ability of SAMs to create functional surfaces that can be employed as molecular platforms. Employing non-covalent interactions between guest molecules and a host monolayer allows the formation of stable, yet reversible patterns depending on the number of interactions. These immobilized guest molecules may act as templates for further functionalization, providing new strategies for nanofabrication. Combining SAMs with microfluidics devices exploits the high surface to volume ratio to create robust functional interfaces that may find application in fields like sensing or catalysis.
