Polymerization of Diacetylenes in Multilayers

Part of the The IBM Research Symposia Series book series (IRSS)


The synthesis of extended and oriented very thin layers of polymers by solid-state polymerization of multilayers built up from monomolecular films of suitable monomers by means of the Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) technique has been felt to be a particular challenge for a long time. Attempts to make use of radiation-induced free radical polymerization of long-chain vinyl derivatives have been successful only in part (1–5).
