Layer-by-layer sequential adsorption process of polyelectrolytes had conventionally been used for the fabrication of the ultra-thin organic film formed by various polymers with different polarity of charge. In this study, hydrophobic Ruthenium complex monomer (tris (bilyridyl) ruthenium (II) hexafluorophosphate) was micelle-wrapped with an anionic surfactant, sodium dodecylbenzenesulfonate, and was assembled with PAH (poly (allylamine hydrochloride)) which has the opposite charge on ITO substrates. With this method, we succeed in fabricating ultra-thin organic films even when the adsorption material is not polymer but monomer. Moreover it was found that the bilayer thickness of the self-assembled (Ru micelle/PAH) was systematically changed by adjusting the solution pH of each bath. By using this process, EL device was fabricated by depositing the thin film of micelle-wrapping ruthenium complex monomer on ITO and formed Bi electrode on top of the film. Light emission was observed by applying voltage to this device.
