Abstract

Reflection–absorption Fourier transform infrared (RA FT–IR) spectra of spread monolayers of vinyl octadecanoate have been obtained for a range of surface pressures at 292 K. Unpolarised and s- and p-polarised radiation at 30° angle of incidence have been used. Results in the C---H stretching region show that even at very low surface pressures the monolayer appears to consist of condensed domains where the acyl chains are highly ordered and densely packed. At higher surface pressures the average packing density is higher, but otherwise the spectra are unaltered, showing that the acyl chains remain highly ordered with few gauche bonds throughout the accessible range of surface pressure (0.1 to 18 mN m−1). There was no appreciable change in the spectrum when the monolayer passed through the LC to S phase transition.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
