It has been shown experimentally that molecules, which exhibit liquid crystal phases in bulk, also show interesting phenomena when they are formed in monolayers at air-water interface. The purpose of this work is to clarify to what extent can a simple model explain the complicated behavior of such Langmuir monolayers. Molecular dynamic simulation is conducted to observe the phase and dynamics of Langmuir monolayers.
