Abstract

Sideways arrangement: The self-assembly of PPEEB liquid crystalline molecules at the air/water interface was investigated as a function of surface pressure. The self-assembly is caused by a compact edge-on molecular orientation, which gives rise to a range of different-sized aggregate microstructures.
