The liberation process of metal ions in fatty acid salt LB films soaked in a dilute hydrochloric acid has been studied us- ing X-ray diffraction and IR measurements. The reaction kinetics was found to be described as a pseudomonomolecular reaction. It is suggested that the metal ions, after being liberated from the carboxylate sites, are removed from the film system into the solution.
