Abstract: Individual fatty acid molecules adsorbed at the interface between hexadecane and fused silica have been tracked using total internal reflection fluorescence microscopy. Two cooperative diffusive mechanisms are observed: continuous small-scale Brownian motion and occasional large “jumps.” The continuous diffusion exhibits evidence of confinement. The effective interfacial diffusion coefficients for each mechanism increase systematically with temperature; an Arrhenius analysis gives an activation barrier of ∼50 kJ/mol for “jumping” and an upper limit of ∼10 kJ/mol for confined diffusion.
