Sorption of U(VI) on the 4-mercaptopyridine self-assembled-monolayer (4-PyS-SAM) on Au(111) was studied by cyclic voltammetry. Cyclic voltammograms (CV) of the 4-PyS-SAM working electrode was obtained by contact with 1 mM UO$$_{2}$$(NO$$_{3}$$)$$_{2}$$ solution, 1 mM UO$$_{2}$$(NO$$_{3}$$)$$_{2}$$ and 50 mM acetic acid solution, or 1 mM UO$$_{2}$$(NO$$_{3}$$)$$_{2}$$ and 50 mM oxalic acid solution for 6 h at pH 4. Reduction current of uranium(VI) to U(V) was detected in the CV. The CV of the U(VI) associated 4-PyS-SAM after transporting to U(VI) free 0.1 M NaClO4 solution showed that the reduction current was detected in the cases of UO$$_{2}$$(NO$$_{3}$$)$$_{2}$$ and U(VI)-acetate, but not in the case of U(VI)-oxalate solutions, indicating that U(VI) was adsorbed on the 4-PyS-SAM from the UO$$_{2}$$(NO$$_{3}$$)$$_{2}$$ and U(VI)-acetate solutions, but not from U(VI)-oxalate solution. These results suggests that stability of U(VI)-4-PyS-SAM is not so high that U(VI)-4-PyS-SAM cannot be formed in the presence of 50 mM oxalate.
