Abstract

The monolayer-forming properties of four generations of azobenzene-containing dendrons were investigated. The photochromic dendron for monolayer formation was used because of the potential ability to suppress crystallization of the photochromic fragments. All dendritic compounds can be spread on an air-water interface to form a stable monolayer. There ia a systematic increase in the cross-sectional area per molecule with increasing number of alkyl tails in the outer shell of dendrons.
