Gabriela Aldea, Gabriella C. Chitanu, Jean-Michel Nunzi, Sylvie Dabos-Seinon and Bogdan C. Simionescu

The formation and structure of multilayer films containing Rhodamine 6G as cationic dye and maleic acid copolymers as anionic polyelectrolytes were studied by means of UV-spectroscopy and atomic force microscopy. In order to increase the retention of the dye, we examined the influence of the comonomer in the anionic partner and the effect of the presence of a second cationic partner.
