Fluorescent self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) on glass surfaces have been studied as a new material for chemical sensing. The new sensing system presented in this thesis is a label-free sensing approach suitable for metal ion and inorganic anions sensing in both organic solvents and aqueous solution. The sensing SAMs are created by sequential deposition of two building blocks, a fluorophore and a ligand molecule onto an amino terminated SAM on glass slides.
