80-Year-Old Langmuir-Blodgett Technique Gets An Electrospray Update
A popular technique that helps scientists deposit defined layers of tightly packed organic molecules onto solid surfaces is getting its first major update in more than 80 years.
Researchers at Northwestern University have modified the Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) method with an electrospray apparatus to assemble ultrathin, controlled films of colloidal particles on surfaces (J. Am. Chem. Soc. 2015, DOI: 10.1021/jacs.5b06052). Such particle-covered surfaces can serve . . .
