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 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)
Stable cyclotriphosphazenes 5 and 6, with three and four carbon radical centers, have been prepared by condensation of (4-hydroxy-2,6-dichlorophenyl)bis(2,4,6-trichlorophenyl)methyl radical (4) with tetrachloro-2,2'-dioxybiphenylcyclotriphosphazene (7). EPR studies of both polyradicals in fluid solution suggest an electronic communication through the PN(More)
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)
We describe a new and very versatile method to place chosen chemical functionalities at the edge of the pores of macroporous materials. The method is based on the synthesis and self-assembly of inorganic block copolymers (BCPs) having chiral rigid segments bearing controllable quantities of randomly distributed functional groups. The synthesis of a series(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)
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)
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)
A simple and convenient one-pot synthesis of THF solutions of high molecular weight poly(dichlorophosphazene) [NPCl(2)](n), or the (15)N isotopomer [(15)NPCl(2)](n), starting directly from PCl(5) and NH(4)Cl or (15)NH(4)Cl in a solution of 1,2,4-trichlorobenzene in the presence of sulfamic acid and calcium sulfate dihydrate, is described. The solutions of(More)
