3D Ordered Gold Strings by Coating Nanoparticles with Mesogens
Gold nanoparticles covered with a nematic liquid-crystal ligand laterally attached via a thioalkyl spacer and a thioalkane “diluent” exhibit 3D ordering in strings jacketed by the mesogens withExpand

Structure–property relationships in nematic gold nanoparticles
Design rules for the investigation of nanoparticles covered with an organic monolayer are explored. The combination of small “spherical” particles in conjunction with nematogenic mesogens andExpand

Testing the triple network structure of the cubic Imm (I) phase by isomorphous replacement and model refinement
This study provides further tests of the validity of the triple network structure of the body-centred Imm (I) cubic phase in polycatenar (phasmidic) liquid crystals, proposed by Zeng et al., Nat.Expand

Control of anisotropic self-assembly of gold nanoparticles coated with mesogens
The self-assembly was investigated of a series of gold nanoparticles (GNP) that were covered with laterally attached mesogenic molecules (ligands) and different amounts of alkylthiols (co-ligands).Expand

Body-centred cubic packing of spheres - the ultimate thermotropic assembly mode for highly divergent dendrons.
We have synthesized sodium tris(alkoxy)benzoates in which one of the three alkyl chains branches further into three C18H37 chains. These AB5 hyperbranched minidendrons melt directly into aExpand

Combinatorial synthesis and characterization of new asymmetric porphyrins as potential photosensitizers in photodynamic therapy.
Porphyrins play a major role as active photosensitizers in noninvasive optical photodynamic therapy (PDT). In a modular approach, this paper presents a short review of the recent developments ofExpand

Helically Twisted Chiral Arrays of Gold Nanoparticles Coated with a Cholesterol Mesogen.
Gold nanoparticles have been prepared and surface-functionalized with a 1:1 molar mixture of a hexylthiol ligand and a chiral mesogenic ligand consisting of a cholesterylbenzoate attached via anExpand

Added Alkane Allows Thermal Thinning of Supramolecular Columns by Forming Superlattice-An X-ray and Neutron Study.
We report a columnar superlattice formed by blends of dendron-like Li 3,4,5-tris(n-alkoxy)benzoates with n-alkanes. Without the alkane, the wedge-shaped molecules form liquid crystal columns with 3Expand

Chemistry and photochemistry of 2,6-bis(2-hydroxybenzilidene)cyclohexanone. An example of a compound following the anthocyanins network of chemical reactions.
The kinetics and thermodynamics of the 2,6-bis(2-hydroxybenzilidene)cyclohexanone chemical reactions network was studied at different pH values using NMR, UV-vis, continuous irradiation, and flashExpand
