Vertical Standing of Amphiphilic Helical Peptides at the Hexane-Water Interface
Amphiphilic poly(L-leucine) (n=20) helixes having a trimethylammonium head group at the terminal end were stood vertical with a tilt at the hexane-water interface, although they usually laid down to the air-water interface. Structures of the transferred monolayer on a substrate were confirmed by FT-IR spectra and atomic force microscopy(AFM).
