Mercaptopropyltrimethoxysilane-bearing mercapto groups were used to form self-assembly monolayers (SAMs) on glass substrates. The terminal groups (-SH) of SAMs were oxidized into sulphonate groups (-SO3H). The role of the sulphonate groups is to augment hydrolysis in the bulk solution by providing anionic reaction centers for oxide formation. The deposition of titanium oxide thin films in varied acidity of TiCl4 solution has a different yield. Several titanium oxidation states exist in the deposited thin films.
