Abstract : In this studys the spreading of 2-Pentadecylaniline to form monolayers on a Langmuir trough is discussed. This functionalized aniline is found to form stable monolayers which can subsequently be polymerized at an air/water interface. The polymer produced has the properties of being both extremely anisotropic and of high molecular weight. The spreading behavior of the solution polymerized polymer is also discussed.
