Molecular order in Langmuir-Blodgett monolayers of metal-ligand surfactants probed by sum frequency generation.


Molecular organization of Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) monolayers of novel copper-containing metal-ligand surfactants was characterized by the surface-selective vibrational sum frequency generation (SFG) spectroscopy. The orientational and conformational order inferred from the SFG peak amplitudes and line shapes were correlated with the two-dimensional phases of… (More)
