Abstract

The micromorphological variations of amphiphilic L-glutamate derivatives at air-substrate interfaces due to an adjacent mobile polymer matrix have been investigated via fluorescence microscopy. Adjusted monolayers of the L-glutamate derivatives have been transferred by LB technique out of different aggregation states onto various substrates. The substrates have been prepared by successive polymer preadsorption to the solid support. The influence of the adjacent polymer layers on the domain morphology as a function of water content and temperature has been examined intensively. Moreover, reversible domain changes induced by temperature variation of the transferred films have been achieved and have been examined by fluorescence microscopy.
