Methods to form magnetic nanoparticle monolayers using non-aqueous Langmuir layers are reported. Following a discussion of the driving forces in various self-assembly techniques, we describe how aqueous Langmuir layers can be modified for use in conjunction with oxidationsensitive nanoparticles. Monolayers are formed using Fe and–Co nanoparticles, and transferred to carbon-coated transmission electron microscopy grids using the Langmuir-Schaefer method.
