The monolayers of the amphiphilic calixarene derivatives at the lower rim with two adenino units on the surface of pure water, the aqueous subphases containing complementary nucleosides were studied by film balance measurement and relaxation experiments. LB films deposited from all subphases were investigated by UV spectra and FT-IR spectra. All the results indicate that the interaction between the adenino units in the headgroup of amphiphilic calixarene derivatives and the complementary nucleosides in the subphase takes place through multiple complementary hydrogen bonding and the nucleosides in the subphases can be transferred to solid substrates along with their monolayers. © 2004 Elsevier B.V.
