Phase transition of adsorbed films at fluid interfaces induced by pressure

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


The phase transition of the adsorbed films of long chain fluorocarbon alcohol, hydrocarbon alcohol, and their mixtures at the hexane/water interface was reviewed mainly from the viewpoint of pressure effect on them. It is shown that the bulk concentration at the phase transition is lowered substantially by hydrostatic pressure. The phase transition is further examined in terms of the volume associated with adsorption and the composition of alcohols at the interface, and also by the X-ray reflectivity measurements.
