Abstract

The results of an experimental and calculative study of a new, rigidified amphiphile designed to form a well-ordered, two-dimensional Langmuir-Blodgett monolayer crystal are reported. The packing of the amphiphile is shown by atomic force microscopy to be closer to hexagonal than found for a stearic acid monolayer. The true planar space group is p1. The results essentially mirror those obtained from an atom-atom potential calculation of the packing of the amphiphile. The investigation demonstrates the utility of designing amphiphiles to “engineer” specific planar lattices.
