The interaction of a synthetic enantiopure azamacrocyclic receptor (L) with biologically important chiral dicarboxylates (A, 1-7) has been studied by means of potentiometric titrations in 0.15 M NaCl aqueous solution in a wide pH range. This macrocycle forms strong complexes of the type [HnLA](n-2) (with n = 0-5). As a general trend, the binding is much(More)
The linear and non-linear viscoelastic behaviors of polymer-like micellar solutions of cetyltrimethylammonium tosilate (CTAT) with added NaOH and tetraethyl orthosilicate (TEOS) to produce precursors of mesoporous materials are studied. The effect of TEOS/CTAT (T/C) ratio at fixed CTAT concentration, CTAT concentration at fixed T/C and aging time are(More)
Proximate, thermal, morphological and rheological properties of canned "negro Querétaro" bean pastes, as a function of fat content (0, 2 and 3 %) and temperature (60, 70 and 85 °C), were evaluated. Raw and precooked bean pastes were characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). Well-defined starch granules(More)
The molecular self-assembly of macrocycle 4 is induced by the simultaneous coordination of two molecules of 4-pyridyldiphenylphosphine 3, a highly selective ditopic ligand, to Zn-bisporphyrin 1 and a square-planar Pd(II) complex 2.COD. We report a detailed thermodynamic characterization of the assembly process based on the quantification of each one of the(More)
The phase and rheological behavior of hexadecyl(trimethyl)azanium; 2-hydroxybenzoate (CTAS), and water as a function of surfactant concentration and temperature are investigated here. The critical micellization concentration (cmc(1)) and the concentration at which the structure of aggregates changes (cmc(2)) as well as the Krafft temperature (T(K)) are(More)
The aggregation properties of 2-, 3-, and 4-fluorobenzoic acids (2FBA, 3FBA, and 4FBA, respectively) and their salts with hexadecyltrimethylammonium cations (HTA2FB, HTA3FB, and HTA4FB) in water were studied with a battery of techniques. Their activity at the air/solution interface has been also studied. The position of the fluorine atom in the acid(More)
