Interfacial behavior of the giant surfactants with precisely tethered molecular nanoparticles (MNPs) is an important topic. In this article, by the combination of hydrosilylation, esterification, and CuAAC ‘‘click’’ chemistry, poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO) chains were end-capped with particle-like aryl-trifluorovinyl ether functionalized polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane (FVPOSS) to construct “one-head one-tail” and “bola-form” giant surfactants. The giant surfactants are spread at air/water interface, and surface pressure-area (π-A) isotherms reveal their interfacial behaviors under compression. Atomic force microscope (AFM) images indicate that the giant surfactants show fractal growth behavior after transferred to the silicon substrate at different surface pressure through the procedure of Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) film deposition.
