Monolayers

Some articles on monolayers, monolayer:

Helmut Ringsdorf - Research Interests
... Systems Polymerizable and functional amphiphiles (detergents, lipids), polymeric monolayers and multilayers via the Langmuir-Blodgett technique and via self-assembly on various surfaces ... in molecular assemblies molecular recognition, 2D-crystallization and function of proteins on monolayers and liposomes, e.g ... Protein–DNA-interaction at ligand lipid monolayers ...
Langmuir–Blodgett Trough - History
... continued by Lord Rayleigh, who suggested that the spreading of oil on water resulted in a monolayer of oil molecules ... she had designed to measure the surface tension of monolayers of hydrophobic and amphiphillic substances ... the amount of several materials (mostly household oils) required to form a monolayer ...
Occurrence and Production - Exfoliated Graphene
... few further steps, the flakes including monolayers were sedimented on a silicon wafer ... the observation of very thin graphitic fragments (possibly monolayers) by transmission electron microscopy ... In particular, it has later been found that graphene monolayers grown on SiC and Ir are weakly coupled to these substrates (how weakly remains debated) and the graphene–subst ...
Monolayer - Chemistry
... A Langmuir monolayer or insoluble monolayer is a one-molecule thick layer of an insoluble organic material spread onto an aqueous subphase ... Traditional compounds used to prepare Langmuir monolayers are amphiphilic materials that possess a hydrophilic headgroup and a hydrophobic tail ... other materials have been employed to produce Langmuir monolayers, some of which are semi-amphiphilic, including macromolecules such as polymers ...
Langmuir–Blodgett Film
... A Langmuir–Blodgett film contains one or more monolayers of an organic material, deposited from the surface of a liquid onto a solid by immersing (or emersing) the solid substrate into (or ... A monolayer is adsorbed homogeneously with each immersion or emersion step, thus films with very accurate thickness can be formed ... This thickness is accurate because the thickness of each monolayer is known and can therefore be added to find the total thickness of a Langmuir–Blodgett film ...
