Monomolecular Films of Organic Diacyl Diperoxides on the Interface of the Phases Water–Air

Monomolecular films of diacyl diperoxides at the water–air phase interface have been studied. Their behaviour is influenced by the structure of the molecule and the solvent. The numerical values of the areas of molecules that are extrapolated to zero pressure are different, which indicates a different conformation of the molecules in the monolayer. The conformational states of diperoxides were calculated by quantum chemical methods. Experimental data and quantum chemical calculations are consistent with each other.
