Chemical Polymerization of 2-Pentadecylaniline Confined to a Planar Liquid/Liquid Interface
The monomer 2-pentadecylaniline was spread at a planar aqueous/cyclohexane interface. Its behavior was studied at different subphase sulfuric acid concentrations by monitoring the interfacial pressure with a Wilhelmy balance. The isotherms obtained are discussed. It was found that the monomer was best trapped at the interface at high sulfuric acid concentrations. Polymerization of a monolayer of 2-pentadecylaniline using an acidic ferric chloride solution in the aqueous subphase was possible, yielding a poly-(2-pentadecylaniline) film. The polymer formed was characterized by GPC, UV-vis, and 1H NMR. © 1993, American Chemical Society. All rights reserved.
