Summary The stereocomplexation of stereoregular PMMA at the air/water interface was proved by structure determination using reflection-absorption IR and grazing incidence X-ray diffraction. Morphological studies on LB films of i- and s-PMMA blends with different ratios help to disclose the stereocomplexation process of stereoregular PMMA at the air/water interface. It was found that the stereocomplexes exist in particle aggregates randomly dispersed at the air/water interface. In the systems with the i:s ratio deviated from 1:2, the molecules, either i-PMMA or s-PMMA, that do not participate in the stereocomplexation build separate layer surrounding the stereocomplexes. This layer is much thinner than the particle aggregates of the stereocomplexes. If the i-PMMA molecules are rich in this thinner layer, crystallization of i-PMMA takes place, which generates lamellar structure besides the stereocomplexes.
