Synthetic glycolipids have been prepared by coupling of (a) aliphatic amines with lactone derivatives, or (b) fatty acids with amino derivatives of mono- and disaccharides via amide linkage. The aliphatic chain was varied with respect to the chain length and to its chemical composition (fluorination, functional end group). The influence of the glycolipid structure on the monolayer properties was investigated. Stable films are obtained with most of the products mainly due to strong interactions by hydrogen bonds in the subphase. Polymeric films may be produced by polycondensation in the subphase using particular crosslinking agents for the carbohydrate head group.
