Paper Abstract

Infrared Reflection-Absorption Spectroscopy (IRAS) is a very useful tool to investigate the conformation of amphiphiles at the air/water interface. Herein, monomolecular films consisting of 1-hexadecanol were studied using different incident angles and states of polarization. It is shown that for s-polarization the bands are negative, and the intensities decrease with increasing angles of incidence. For p-polarization, negative bands are only encountered at small incidence angles, while at large incidence angles the bands become positive.
