Abstract

The structural and morphological features of arachidic acid monolayers arestudied systematically between pH 2 and 13 by X-ray diffraction, Brewster-angle microscopy, and thermodynamic measurements on subsolutions free of polyvalent ions. A monotonic relationship is found between the pH and the distortion of the lattice perpendicular to the chain axes. A nonmonotonic pH dependence is found for structural parameters like lattice spacings, tilt angles, molecular area, and positional correlation length as well as phase boundaries. The results provide evidence that the fatty acid amphiphiles are hydrogen bonded at the interface and that the bonding strength is affected by the degree of headgroup dissociation in a discontinuous way. Strongest bonding is found at pH 9, where 50% of the carboxylic headgroups are dissociated. Hydrogen bonding force hence opposes electrostatic headgroup repulsion and stabilizes a particular structure. At higher pH (12-13) a drastic pH dependence of the domain shapes and domain fusion are observed. This is ascribed to a change of line tension and electrostatic repulsion between liquid condensed and liquid expanded phase.
