Abstract

Molecular recognition in Langmuir manolayers at the air - water interface as a function of headgroop orientation and substrate using isothermes and in-situ Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) reflection spectroscopy has been investigated. Isotherm mesurements show that urea and 2,4,6-triaminopyrimidine (TAP) are specifically bound to barbituric acid lipid monolayers. As expected, TAP causes a larger shift in the limiting area of the isotherms than urea due to steric requirements. The peak positions of the CH stretching vibrations of the barbituric acid lipids indicate that the alkyl chains of bartaturic acid lipids 1-3 are in a close-packed all-trans conformation both before and after the recognition process. The complexation of TAP is monitored in situ using external reflection FT-IR spectroscopy through shifts of the conformation-sensitive carbonyl frequencies in the head group region, while no shifts in the carboayl peak are observed when urea recognizes the lipid monolayers.
