The objective of this study was to obtain an optimum formulation for microencapsulating Ibuprofen. This was achieved by investigating various factors which influenced the microcapsule size. Considering Ibuprofen as a lipophilic model drug, biocompatible Ibuprofen-loaded microcapsules in the size range of 20-60microm were prepared by the water in oil(More)
We investigated the S1 and S2 states of linear and zigzag cata-condensed hydrocarbons on the basis of the results of jet spectroscopy and theoretical calculations. The S1 states of anthracene and tetracene are represented by the HOMO → LUMO configuration (Φ(A)), whereas those of phenanthrene and chrysene are represented by HOMO-1 → LUMO and HOMO → LUMO+1(More)
Vibrational level structure in the S(0) (1)A(g) and S(1) (1)B(3u) states of pyrene was investigated through analysis of fluorescence excitation spectra and dispersed fluorescence spectra for single vibronic level excitation in a supersonic jet and through referring to the results of ab initio theoretical calculation. The vibrational energies are very(More)
Fast intersystem crossing is observed in the S(1)(1)nπ* state of N-heterocyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and carbonyl compounds. It is attributed to spin-orbit coupling with the (3)ππ* state in the same energy region. The strong singlet-triplet mixing was confirmed by large Zeeman splitting of rotational lines in a high-resolution spectrum. For the S(1)(1)ππ*(More)
PhotoDSC has been applied to follow the global kinetics of chain scissions resulting from the UV light irradiation or from the thermal degradation of a high molecular weight PEO (4 x 10(6) g x mol(-1)). Infrared spectroscopy, XRD measurements and rheology experiments were performed to evidence the occurrence of chain scissions. Melting energy was used as a(More)
Rotationally resolved ultrahigh-resolution spectra of the S(1) (1)B(2u)<--S(0) (1)A(g) transition of anthracene-h(10) and anthracene-d(10) have been observed using a single-mode UV laser and a collimated supersonic jet. We have determined rotational constants of the zero-vibrational levels of the S(0) and S(1) states by analyzing the precisely calibrated(More)
The substituent effect on the g-tensor of polycrystalline 2,6-di-tert-butyl phenoxyl radical derivatives diluted in diamagnetic crystals was investigated using multifrequency ESR spectroscopy and DFT calculations. It was revealed that the g-tensors of the series of phenoxyl radical derivatives essentially have an orthorhombic symmetry. For some radicals,(More)
Electron spin resonance (ESR) features in heavily doped conjugated polymers are investigated through the comparison of temperature dependences of ESR spectra between head-to-tail coupled regioregular (RR) and regiorandom (RRa) poly(3-octylthiophenes) (P3OTs). RR-P3OT, used as a model of having crystalline grains in the solid film, is found to exhibit(More)
We observed the fluorescence excitation spectra and mass-selected resonance enhanced multiphoton ionization (REMPI) excitation spectra for the 6(0)(1), 6(0)(1)1(0)(1), and 6(0)(1)1(0)(2) bands of the S1←S0 transition of jet-cooled deuterated benzene and assigned the vibronic bands of C6D6 and C6HD5. The 6(0)(1)1(0)(n) (n = 0, 1, 2) and 0(0)(0) transition(More)
Rotationally resolved high-resolution fluorescence excitation spectra of (14)NO3 radical have been observed for the 662 nm band, which is assigned as the 0-0 band of the B̃(2)E' ←X̃(2)A2' transition, by crossing a single-mode laser beam perpendicularly to a collimated molecular beam. More than 3000 rotational lines were detected in 15,070-15,145 cm(-1)(More)
