  • Monolayers of 1,2-dipalmitoylgalloylglycerol (DPGG) were investigated at the air-water interface. The monolayers exhibit high rigidity which leads to the formation of surface tension gradients in the film. Transfer to solid substrate yields homogeneous Langmuir-Blodgett films with low surface roughness. Large numbers of aggregates were observed by Brewster angle microscopy and imaging ellipsometry at relatively high molecular areas. At all pressures, the DPGG molecules adopt conformations… CONTINUE READING
