    Behavior of realistic n-nonadecane, C[sub 19]H[sub 40], on the free surface of the melt is investigated by the molecular dynamics simulation. A crystalline thin film made of three layers of lamellas is constructed and used as an initial state of the heating simulation, where we devise a special...

    We report direct evidence of a unit mesh containing more than one hydrocarbon chain at the surface of a self-assembled monolayer of long-chain n-alkanethiols. Our helium diffraction measurements for a monolayer of n-octadecanethiol on Au(111) are consistent with a rectangular primitive unit mesh...

    X-ray reflection (both specular and off-specular) and grazing incidence diffraction (GID) have been used to study the structure of alkylsiloxane monolayers (n-C18H37SiO1.5) formed by self-assembly from solution on silicon wafers. GID studies of complete monolayers reveal a single ring of...
