Controlled exterior: Electrochemically induced, SAM-based reactions have a potential in the site-selective functionalization of surfaces. A recent study shows that a reaction, Sharpless click chemistry, can be site-selectively performed at microelectrodes by electrochemically controlling the activity of a catalyst for the reaction.
