Properties and Applications of Well-Tailored Organized Assemblies

Abstract

In the past several years, the enormous possibilities of the Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) technique for producing ordered supermolecular architectures, with extensive scientific and technological applications, have begun to be appreciated and in some cases demonstrated. In this paper, we review some key developments in the fabrication and utilization of LB films in the last decade or so; we also discuss in some detail various possible applications, particularly in electrical areas such as molecular electronic devices, electroluminescent light sources, and even high temperature excitonic superconductors. Recent LB work at Xerox Research Centre of Canada is described; this includes structural investigations of novel phthalocyanine monolayers and their application to the study of Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering, as well as fabrication of reaction center protein monolayers used to study charge transfer processes in photosynthesis.
