A study of azo dye/liquid crystal mixtures in monolayers formed at an air-water interface (the Langmuir films) and at a solid surface (the Langmuir-Blodgett films) has been performed. Five azo dyes with various molecular structure and the liquid crystal 4-octyl-4'-cyanobiphenyl (8CB) have been used. The dyes have been added to the liquid crystal at various molar fractions. Surface pressure and surface potential versus mean molecular area isotherms for the Langmuir films have been recorded and information about intermolecular interactions at the air-water interface has been obtained. On the basis of electronic absorption measurements for the Langmuir and Langmuir-Blodgett films the conclusions about the ability of dyes molecules to form self-aggregates at the interfaces have been drawn. The influence of the dye molecular structure and its concentration on aggregates' geometry has been found.
