Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review


Langmuir-Blodgett monolayers of isotactic PMMA exhibit a pressure-induced transition upon compression, that can be described in terms of a two-dimensional crystallization process, analogous to a normal melt crystallization.

These water surface crystallized monolayers can be used to prepare highly crystalline thin films of isotactic PMMA with tailor-made orientational characteristics.
