15.Thicknesses were determined using a single wavelength (623.8 nm) null-ellipsometer as previously described [D. L. Allara and R. G. Nuzzo, Langmuir 1, 52 (1987)].The FRS measurements of total proton surface density were carried out at the ion accelerator facility at Cornell University. The use of deuterated alcohols showed adsorbed was not an interfering factor. The normal incidence TIRS measurements were done at resolution on a Bomem MB 100 series Fourier transform spectrometer. Fringing effects were minimized both by use of wedged Si( 100) wafers (Harrick Scientific). Sessile drop contact angle measurements were conducted in a saturated vapor of the probe liquid at and are reported as multiple sample averages with five spots analyzed per sample.

20.Connections between the chain-length induced structural transitions and 2D systems can be made by invoking recent studies of ordering in 2D vortex lattices on superconductors [C. A. Murray et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 64, 2312 (1990)] in which magnetic fields have been observed to induce ordering transitions from isotropic phases to hexatic phases by unpinning pair vortices from a disordered defect lattice. One can make an approximate conceptual analogy between the magnetic field as an unpinning force in the vortex field and intermolecular interactions between alkyl chains, which, in the limit of sufficiently flexible and long molecules, should tend to overide the pinning lattice disorder in regions towards the termini of the chains (away from the substrate) and thereby force the molecular system into a different structural phase, relatively uncorrelated with the pinning lattice.
21.We stress, however, that the short chain limit is out of the range of applicability of mean-field polymer theories and associated experiments involving very long chains with polydispersity. These long-chain-limit approaches ignore the local structure of chains and focus purely on long-range scaling behavior of the thermodynamic and structural properties of these polymer assemblies (i.e., the zero wave vector limit alone is considered).
