Abstract

We have used diffraction of synchrotron radiation to study Langmuir monolayers of several different materials. Lead octadecanoate (stearate) was seen to undergo first order melting, although there is no clear indication of this in its isotherm. 1-eicosanol, which has a "kink" in its isotherm, shows diffraction peaks of similar size both above and below this kink. Tetracosanoic acid shows, at high pressure, a second peak close to the first.
