Over the past several decades, the Langmuir monolayer and Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) techniques have been widely utilized for the characterization of small amphiphilic molecules such as organic polymers (i.e. block copolymers, star block copolymers, and dendritic polymers), inorganic nanomaterials, and even carbon nanotubes and biomolecules. This chapter will introduce several amphiphilic and colloidal materials and describe their surface chemistry and properties at the air-water interface. Finally, some examples of thin film applications using LB films will be discussed.
