The frictional properties of an immobilized fluorinated polymer nanosheet were investigated to develop an ultrathin solid lubrication film with an excellent wear-resistant. N-(1H,1H-Pentadecafluorooctylmethacrylamide) copolymers containing carboxyl group as a reactive moiety form a stable monolayer on the water surface and a highly ordered reactive fluorinated polymer nanosheet can be fabricated by the Langmuir-Blodgett technique. The reactive fluorinated polymer nanosheet was immobilized onto solid substrates through chemical binding with an aminosilane coupling agent, and the film showed smooth surface even after the reaction. The immobilized fluorinated polymer nanosheet had a low friction coefficient and strong wear-resistant.
