A novel lyotropic liquid crystal formed by triphilic star-polyphiles: Hydrophilic/oleophilic/fluorophilic rods arranged in a 12.6.4. tiling
Triphilic star-polyphiles are short-chain oligomeric molecules with a radial arrangement of hydrophilic, hydrocarbon and fluorocarbon chains linked to a common centre. They form a number of liquid crystalline structures when mixed with water. In this contribution we focus on a hexagonal liquid crystalline mesophase found in star-polyphiles as compared to the corresponding double-chain surfactant to determine whether the hydrocarbon and fluorocarbon chains are in fact demixed in these...[Show more]
