Abstract
A facile method for investigating the orientation of amphiphiles in the LB films using IR transmission and reflection-absorption spectroscopy (RAS) wa s presented. This method does not require the estimation of the enhancement factor in the RAS measurements or that of the difference in quantities of the molecules in the LB films on different substrates. The application of t he present method to the actual LB films gave better results compared with the conventional method.
