Communication: Microstructure control in LB films, for example with lithography, is essential for potential applications in electronics. The photochemically induced reaction shown in the figure, where the highly ordered, densely packed film cleaves to form a cationic polymer (right) and a hydrophobic side chain (left) could be exploited to produce domainsized features on flood exposure with UV light.
