The growth of self-assembled titania-based films at the air-water interface
The surfactant-assisted assembly of new titania-based films at the air-water interface has been monitored by time-resolved energy-dispersive reflectometry using X-rays and neutrons. Two films are described. The first, prepared from an aqueous alkaline solution containing Ti(OBun)4 and the cationic surfactant tetradecyltrimethylammonium chloride (C14TAC), shows short-range ordering. In moderately alkaline solution (pH ∼ 10). triethanolamine (TEA) was required to complex the titanium alkoxide...[Show more]
