Abstract

Recent developments in synthesis of ordered polymer layers through polymerization at interfaces and alternate polymer adsorption are described. In particular, a large variety of chain growth processes are coupled with epitaxial alignment of polymer chains on graphite as confirmed by scanning tunneling microscopy. This polymerization-induced epitaxy provides two-dimensionally ordered, stable polymer layers. The alternate adsorption of oppositely charged polymers on charged surfaces produces ordered polymer layers and has been extended to globular proteins and inorganic macro-ions.
