Nanocompartmentalization of soft materials with three mutually immiscible solvents: synthesis and self-assembly of three-arm star-polyphiles

de Campo, Liliana; Moghaddam, Minoo J.; Varslot, Trond; Kirby, Nigel; Mittelbach, Rainer; Sawkins, Tim; Hyde, Stephen T.


We report synthesis, thermotropic, and lyotropic mesomorphism of a family of novel “star-polyphiles”: small star-shaped molecules bearing three mutually immiscible arms, hydrophilic (oligoethylene glycol), oleophilic (alkanes), and fluorophilic (perfluorinated alkanes), attached to a central 1,3,5-trihydroxybenzene core. A facile, flexible multistep synthesis giving high-purity yields of 14 distinct members of the family is described, with variable arm lengths, forming crystalline, or...[Show more]
