Monolayer films were fabricated from photochromic monodendrons with amphiphilic character. Amphiphilicity was established by a hydrophilic focal point (crown-ether) and hydrophilic tails (alkyl chains) that flank a photochromic azobenzene moiety. The monolayer forming properties of four generations of dendrons along with both stearic acid and a reference azobenzene compound with a carboxylic acid focal point group were determined.
