We developed a simple method for preparation of well-defined films of X-, T- and anchor-shaped bolaamphiphiles. The compounds were judiciously chosen to investigate the influence of the general molecular structure on the self-assembly properties. Precisely calculated (on the basis of Langmuir π(A) isotherms) volumes of chloroform solutions of the compounds of known concentrations were spread (drop-casted) directly onto the surface of water or silicon wafer. During the solvent evaporation… CONTINUE READING
