Thermal stability up to 160°C of monolayers of trichloro(octadecyl)silane (TCOS) and cadmium stearate (CS) on solid substrates are examined by using FT-IR transmission spectroscopy. The changes in wavenumbers and absorbances of CH2 stretching bands with temperature clearly demonstrate that the 1-layer LB film of TCOS on glass slides are considerably stable and resistant against heating, compared with that of CS.
