Characterization and organic vapor sensing properties of Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) thin films of calix[n]arene (n=4, 6, 8) derivatives are reported in this work. Surface pressure-area isotherm graph shows that very stable monolayers are formed at the water surface. The results indicate that good quality, uniform LB films can be prepared with a transfer ratio of over 0.95. Calix[n]arene LB films have been characterized by contact angle measurements, quartz crystal microbalance (QCM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and atomic force microscopy (AFM). LB film of calixarene which has the largest cavity yields a gradient with a mass value of 773 ng per layer according to the QCM results. AFM and SEM images showed a dense surface morphology obtained for all samples. QCM system was used for the measurement of sensor response against chloroform, benzene, toluene and ethanol vapors. These LB film samples yield a response to all vapors with a large, fast, and reproducible due to the adsorption of vapors into the LB film structures. Among them, calixarene LB film has higher sensitivity toward the organic vapors because of a large cavity size. This study can be concluded that the cavity size of calix[n]arene molecule could have an important role in the research area of room temperature vapor sensing devices. (C) 2014 Elsevier B.V.
