Ionic liquids accumulate within Escherichia coli cells and can be detected by Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy. Harvested cells were incubated with the biocompatible, water-immiscible ionic liquids, trihexyltetradecylphosphonium bis(trifluoromethylsulfonyl)imide The cells were harvested, washed and dried, and their FT-IR spectra were(More)
The formation of complex inorganic superstructures in nature relies on the interaction between organic and inorganic species to direct the inorganic form away from its " usual " morphology. During synthesis the superstructures are soft and dynamic which makes a study of the nature of the ephemeral interface difficult. [1] However, the inorganic skeletons(More)
Atomistic molecular dynamic simulations have been performed for the non-ionic chromonic liquid crystal 2,3,6,7,10,11-hexa-(1,4,7-trioxa-octyl)-triphenylene (TP6EO2M) in aqueous solution. TP6EO2M molecules consist of a central poly-aromatic core (a triphenylene ring) functionalized by six hydrophilic ethyleneoxy (EO) chains, and have a strong tendency to(More)
