Modified octadecylamine (ODA) based Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) films were investigated. These films may find uses as ion exchange systems. ODA may be used to functionalize carbon nanomaterials. Thermal decomposition of metal nitrates in the presence of ODA may be used to obtain metal oxide nano crystals of controlled size and shape. ODA based LB fims was used to realise enzymatic field effect transistor (ENFET) biosensors
Octadecylamine is used as asphalt emulsifier, lubricant and dispersants. It acts as a cationic surfactant and find applications is hair rinse bases, wood preservatives, textile softeners, dyeing auxiliaries and pigment grinding aids. It is used in boiler as an additive, which prevents the corrosion arises due to steam. It is a basic building block and used as an intermediate in the preparation of their amine derivatives, ethoxylates and amides. Metal oxide nano crystals having controlled size and shape are prepared by the thermal decomposition of metal nitrates with octadecylamine.
