Chiral surfaces were prepared by L, D, and Meso-tartaric acids (TAs) adsorbed on geministructured self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) composed of ethylenebis [(12-mercaptododecyl) dimethyl ammonium bromide] (HS-gQA-SH). The formation and structure of the chiral surfaces were characterized by surface plasmon resonance spectroscopy (SPR) and Fourier transform infraredreflection adsorption spectroscopy (FTIR-RAS). The thickness of enantiomeric TA layers on the HS-gQA-SH SAM was estimated to be c.a. 5-6 Å regardless of their chirality, in good agreement with the height of TA molecules anchoring on the surface with two COOH groups. All the TAs on the HS-gQA-SH SAM exhibit the same ionization state independent of their chirality in their vibration bands of carboxyiic groups. We attempted a second-layer adsorption of the enantiomeric TAs on L-TA monomolecular layer (L-TA SAM) precomposed on the HS-gQA-SH. A strong affinity between first and second TA layers resulted in the film growth when their chirality is identical (i.e., L-TA on L-TA SAM). We found the structure of second L-TA layer was completely different from that of the first layer, where a crystalline-like L-TA phase was found as a predominant component. Our results imply a preferential crystalline growth of chiral molecules on the same chiral surface, which may lead to a work for optical resolution into two enantiomers at a solid-liquid interface.
