Controlling the Supramolecular Polymerization of Donor-Acceptor π-Systems through Hydrogen Bond Intervention

Nair, Vishnu Sukumaran; Vedhanarayanan, Balaraman; Ajayaghosh, Ayyappanpillai

Supramolecular polymerization of donor-acceptor type molecules leads to mixed or self-sorted assemblies depending on the donor-acceptor strength and extent of noncovalent interactions between the components. Herein, we discuss how competing hydrogen bonding motifs control the supramolecular polymerization pathway of a two-component molecular π-system of oligo(p-phenylenevinylene) (OPV-B and…

Ordered structure effects on β-nucleated isotactic polypropylene/graphene oxide composites with different thermal histories

Yu, Yansong; Xu, Ruizhang; Chen, Jinyao; Kang, Jian; Xiang, Ming; Li, Yuanjie; Li, Lu; Sheng, Xingyue

In this paper, the influence of ordered structure effects (OSE) on crystallization behaviors of b-nucleated isotactic polypropylene/graphene oxide (b-iPP/GO) composites with different thermal histories, which crystallized at a slow cooling rate (called SLOW), fast cooling rate (called FAST) and medium cooling rate (called MED), respectively, was studied by differential scanning…

Influence of extender oil composition on flowing property, thermal stability, and morphology of styrene-b-ethylene-co-butylene-b-styrene copolymer/polypropylene/oil blends

Shi, Xiaotao; Wu, Jianxun; Zhen, Xinping; Xie, Haisheng; Xiong, Chunzhu

In this study, a series of styrene-b-ethylene-co-butylene-b-styrene copolymer (SEBS)/polypropylene (PP)/oil blends with different kinds of oil composition was developed through melt blending. The effect of oil with different composition and properties on its phase equilibrium and “redistribution” in multiphasic SEBS elastomer was systematically studied for the first time. Moreover, an…

Effect of Drawing on the Electrical, Thermoelectrical, and Mechanical Properties of Wet-Spun PEDOT:PSS Fibers

Sarabia-Riquelme, Ruben; Shahi, Maryam; Brill, Joseph W.; Weisenberger, Matthew C.

New electrically conducting and mechanically robust fibers and yarns are needed as building blocks for emerging textile devices. In this work, we describe a continuous wet-spinning process for the fabrication of poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene):poly(styrenesulfonate) (PEDOT:PSS) fibers with high electrical conductivity, excellent mechanical properties, and moderate thermoelectric performance by…

Deoxycholic acid and l-Phenylalanine enrich their hydrogel properties when combined in a zwitterionic derivative

Travaglini, Leana; di Gregorio, Maria Chiara; Severoni, Emilia; D’Annibale, Andrea; Sennato, Simona; Tardani, Franco; Giustini, Mauro; Gubitosi, Marta; Del Giudice, Alessandra; Galantini, Luciano

Hypothesis Sodium Deoxycholate (NaDC) and Phenylalanine (Phe) are important biological hydrogelators. NaDC hydrogels form by lowering the pH or by increasing the ionic strength. Phe gels form from saturated solution by thermal induction and slow kinetics. The resulting gels hold great potential in medicine and biology as drug carriers and…

Colloidal Solubility and Agglomeration of Apolar Nanoparticles in Different Solvents

Doblas, David; Kister, Thomas; Cano-Bonilla, Marina; González-García, Lola; Kraus, Tobias

We studied the concentration-dependent agglomeration of apolar nanoparticles in different solvents. Octanethiol-stabilized gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) in evaporating liquid droplets were observed in situ using small-angle X-ray scattering. Concurrent analysis of liquid volume and particle agglomeration provided time-dependent absolute concentrations of free and agglomerated particles. All…

Translation of nanomedicines from lab to industrial scale synthesis: The case of squalene-adenosine nanoparticles

Dormont, Flavio; Rouquette, Marie; Mahatsekake, Clement; Gobeaux, Frédéric; Peramo, Arnaud; Brusini, Romain; Calet, Serge; Testard, Fabienne; Lepetre-Mouelhi, Sinda; Desmaële, Didier; Varna, Mariana; Couvreur, Patrick

A large variety of nanoparticle-based delivery systems have become increasingly important for diagnostic and/or therapeutic applications. Yet, the numerous physical and chemical parameters that influence both the biological and colloidal properties of nanoparticles remain poorly understood. This complicates the ability to reliably produce and deliver well-defined nanocarriers which often leads…

A designer fast Li-ion conductor Li6.25PS5.25Cl0.75 and its contribution to the polyethylene oxide based electrolyte

Li, Dabing; Cao, Liuyang; Liu, Chaodeng; Cao, Guoqin; Hu, Junhua; Chen, Jingbo; Shao, Guosheng

The composite polymer electrolytes, consisting of a flexible matrix and superb fast ion conductor are promising for large-scale practical application in safer lithium metal batteries. The quantification of polymer structure evolution induced by the inorganic filler was rarely reported. Here, a designer cubic argyrodite Li6PS5X sulfide electrolyte was fabricated by…

Core-crystalline nanoribbons of controlled length via diffusion-limited colloid aggregation

Schmarsow, Ruth N.; Ceolín, Marcelo; Zucchi, Ileana A.; Schroeder, Walter F.

It has been previously reported that poly(ethylene) (PE)-based block copolymers self-assemble in certain thermosetting matrices to form a dispersion of one-dimensional (1D) nanoribbons. Such materials exhibit exceptional properties that originate from the high aspect ratio of the elongated nano-objects. However, the ability to prepare 1D assemblies with well-controlled dimensions is…

Wet spinning and radial self-assembly of a carbohydrate low molecular weight gelator into well organized hydrogel filaments

Chalard, Anaïs; Joseph, Pierre; Souleille, Sandrine; Lonetti, Barbara; Saffon-Merceron, Nathalie; Loubinoux, Isabelle; Vaysse, Laurence; Malaquin, Laurent; Fitremann, Juliette

In this work, we describe how a simple single low molecular weight gelator (LMWG) molecule – N-heptyl-D-galactonamide, which is easy to produce at the gram scale – is spun into gel filaments by a wet spinning process based on solvent exchange. A solution of the gelator in DMSO is injected…
