The structure of Langmuir–Blodget (LB) films built up from a novel benzothiazolium steryl dye containing a 1, 10-dithia-18-crown-6 ether group has been investigated using ellipsometry and polarised absorption spectroscopy. The Y-type deposition results in a uniaxial film with a thickness of 2.18 ± 0.08 nm per monolayer and an index of refraction of 1.57 ± 0.03. the chromophore parts of the moelcule exhibit an in-Plane orientation. The influence of mercury vapouron the LB films has been investigated using the technique of surface plasmon resonance.
