The effect of charged groups on the structure of nonionic and ionic silane films deposited on a hydrophilic surface from aqueous solutions was analyzed using Monte Carlo (MC) simulations in 2D. The impact of charged group in cationic silane on the overall structure of the films was investigated. The film structure with spatial pair correlations at each molecular layer of the deposited films was characterized. An average 'most probable' structure for the films of nonionic and cationic silanes was described based on two-dimensional simulations.
