    A series of aggregation structures of bilayer forming azobenzene amphiphiles, CnAzoCmN+Br-, both in single crystals and cast films was determined by the X-ray diffraction method and uv-visible absorption spectroscopy. From the relationship between chemical structures and their two-dimensional supramolecular structure, factors determining the molecular orientation in bilayer structure were discussed. Some unique properties based on two-dimensional molecular ordenng were also discussed.
