Molecules for Langmuir-Blodgett Film Formation
Molecules with an appropriate balance between hydrophilic and hydrophobic character may be spread as monolayers on the water surface. Under appropriate conditions these monolayers may be built up onto a substrate as Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) films. This paper reviews the types of molecule that are known to give good LB film formation, with especial reference to potential applications in molecular electronics.
