The synthesis of new modified 2-aryloxazoline ligands is described. The aromatic portion of the oxazoline has been appended with an amide linked thioctic acid derived group that is designed to facilitate attachment of the ligand to gold nanoparticles. This represents the first examples of ligands within the class of monodentate oxazolines that have been modified for this specific function.
