Abstract

The surface pressure-area curve for β-carotene was investigated and found to be different from an earlier report. The extrapolation of the steep part of the π-A curve gives 18 A ̊2 molecule, which agrees with the cross sectional area of one molecule. A single layer seems to be present at the air-water interface.
