Growing complex metallic crystals, supported high index facet nanocrystal composites and tunable porosity metals, and exploiting factors that influence shape and morphology is crucial in many exciting developments in chemistry, catalysis, biotechnology and nanoscience. Assembly, organization and ordered crystallization of nanostructures into complex shapes(More)
The polyphosphazene {NP[O(2)C(12)H(7.5)(NH(2))(0.5)]}(n), prepared by reacting {NP[O(2)C(12)H(7.5)(NO(2))(0.5)]} with the Lalancette's reagent, was used for attaching enzymes such as alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH-A) and lipase (CAL-B). The resulting new biocatalysts exhibited great potential as tunable supports for enzymatic reactions in both aqueous and(More)
The intrachain conformation, molecular structure and interchain assembly of isotactic (R)-poly(2,2'-dioxy-1,1'-binaphthyl)phosphazene (P-DBNP) both in the bulk state (I) and in the cast film (II) were studied by molecular dynamics (MD) simulations of models, as implemented by a bias potential for the analysis of the radial distribution function (RDF)(More)
The preparation of long-term-stable giant unilamellar vesicles (GUVs, diameter ≥ 1000 nm) and large vesicles (diameter ≥ 500 nm) by self-assembly in THF of the crystalline-b-coil polyphosphazene block copolymers [N=P(OCH2CF3)2 ]n-b-[N=PMePh]m (4 a: n=30, m=20; 4 b: n=90, m=20; 4 c: n=200, m=85), which combine crystalline [N=P(OCH2CF3)2] and amorphous(More)
A random phosphazene copolymer {[N = P((CH2)7-Br)Ph]0.5[N = PMePh]0.5}n (2) and a block copolyphosphazene {[N = P((CH2)7-Br)Ph]0.5[N = PMePh]0.5}45-b-[N = P(O2C12H8)]55 (5), having a branch with two randomly distributed units, have been synthesized and used as precursors for the stannyl derivatives {[N = P((CH2)7-SnBu2An)Ph]0.5[N = PMePh]0.5}n (3) and {[N =(More)
A series of optically active helical polyphosphazene block copolymers of general formula R-[N=P(O2C20H12)]n-b-[N=PMePh]m (R-7 a-c) was synthesized and characterized. The polymers were prepared by sequential living cationic polycondensation of N-silylphosphoranimines using the mono-end-capped initiator [Ph3 P=N=PCl3][PCl6] (5) and exhibit a low(More)
The self-assembly in thin films of polyphosphazene block copolymers [N = P(O2C12H8)]n-b-[N = PMePh]m (O2C12H8 = 2,2'-dioxy-1,1'-biphenyl; : n = 50, m = 35; : n = 20, m = 70, and : n = 245, m = 60), having different volume fractions of the rigid [N = P(O2C12H8)]n block, has been studied. BCP spontaneously self-assembled into well-defined round-shaped(More)
The direct chemical functionalization of poly(spirophosphazene) [NP(O2 C12 H8 )]n (1) can be performed by the lithiation of the aromatic rings at low temperature using Schlosser's base (Lit Bu/KOt Bu or "superbase"), and the subsequent reaction with various electrophiles such as ClSiMe3 , ClPPh2 , or MeOB(O2 C6 H12 ) (MeOBpin). The functionalized(More)
The structure and the assembly of tris-(2,2'-dioxy-binaphthyl)cyclotriphosphazene [(+)-[NP3(O2C20H12)3], DBNP, in the solid amorphous state was studied using molecular dynamics (MD) including ad hoc quantum mechanically derived force field (FF) parameters, in combination with the energy dispersive X-ray diffraction (EDXD) technique. The atom-atom radial(More)
New advances into the chirality effect in the self-assembly of block copolymers (BCPs) have been achieved by tuning the helicity of the chiral-core-forming blocks. The chiral BCPs {[N=P(R)-O2C20H12](200-x)[N=P(OC5H4N)2](x)}-b-[N=PMePh]50 ((R)-O2C20H12 = (R)-1,1'-binaphthyl-2,2'-dioxy, OC5H4N = 4-pyridinoxy (OPy); x = 10, 30, 60, 100 for 3 a-d,(More)
