The alternating adsorption of oppositely charged molecular species, known as the electrostatic layer-by-layer (LbL) process, is a simple and elegant method of constructing highly tailored ultrathin polymer and organic-inorganic composite thin films. We use this method to manipulate transport and function in thin films, enabling the generation of a range of organic and organic-inorganic devices. Several approaches to the controlled manipulation, construction and, in some cases, the controlled deconstruction, degradation or dissolution of multilayers upon specific stimulus will be discussed.
