Beyond amphiphiles: Coarse-grained simulations of star-polyphile liquid crystalline assemblies

Kirkensgaard, Jacob Judas Kain; Hyde, Stephen


We have simulated the self-assembly of a novel class of three-arm molecules, ABC star-architecture polyphiles, using coarse-grained bead simulations. A number of topologically complex liquid crystalline mesostructures arise that can be related to the better-known bicontinuous mesophases of lyotropic amphiphilic systems. The simulations reveal 3D self-assemblies whose structural variations follow those expected assuming a simple steric molecular packing model as a function of star polyphile...[Show more]
