Abstract
Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) film research has long-term aims (to construct devices for sensing, information processing and chemical processing, as inspired by biosystems) and more direct goals (modelling phenomena in physics, chemistry and biology depending on the precise molecular architecture; and the search for applications in any field where materials with basically new properties which depend on the organization at the molecular level are of interest). Basic to both aspects is the challenge to develop purposely planned supramolecular solid systems (by interlocking appropriate molecules) and a matrix-controlled chemistry (specific reactions driven by the superstructure of interlocking molecules). To indicate ways to approach these goals a number of recent examples are discussed that illustrate the possibilities of constructing purposely designed monolayers and monolayer assemblies.
