Separation of chiral molecules using achiral inputs is an interesting alternative to traditional techniques based on the chiral recognition mechanism. In this article we propose a lattice gas Monte Carlo model of two-dimensional chiral segregation induced by breaking of molecular orientational symmetry. Simulations were performed on a square lattice for(More)
The formation of 2D surface-confined supramolecular porous networks is scientifically and technologically appealing, notably for hosting guest species and confinement phenomena. In this study, we report a scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) study of the self-assembly of a tripod molecule specifically equipped with pyridyl functional groups to steer a(More)
The influence of thermal annealing on the surface homogeneity of a polymer imprinted against L-phenylalanine anilide (LPA) was examined using high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) for the measurement of the adsorption isotherms. The isotherms obtained for LPA and for its enantiomer, D-phenylalanine anilide (DPA) were fitted to the Freundlich (F)(More)
On-surface Ullmann coupling is a versatile and appropriate approach for the bottom-up fabrication of covalent organic nanostructures. In two-dimensional networks, however, the kinetically controlled and irreversible coupling leads to high defect densities and a lack of long-range order. To derive general guidelines for optimizing reaction parameters, the(More)
We report a joint computational and experimental study on the concentration-dependent self-assembly of a flat C3-symmetric molecule at surfaces. As a model system we have chosen a rigid molecular module, 1,3,5-tris(pyridine-4-ylethynyl)benzene, which can undergo self-association via hydrogen bonding (H-bonding) to form ordered 2D nanostructures. In(More)
The effect of pressure on the chromatographic behavior of two insulin variants in RPLC was investigated on a YMC-ODS C18 column, under nonlinear conditions. The adsorption isotherm data of porcine insulin and Lispro were measured at average column pressures ranging from 52 to 242 bar. These data fit well to the Toth and the bi-Langmuir isotherm models. The(More)
With the use of a single building block, two nanoporous patterns with nearly equal packing density can be formed upon self-assembly at a liquid-solid interface. Moreover, the formation of both of these porous networks can be selectively and homogenously induced by changing external parameters like solvent, concentration, and temperature. Finally, their(More)
The adsorption behavior of bovine insulin on a C(8)-bonded silica stationary phase was investigated at different column pressures and temperatures in isocratic reversed-phase HPLC. Changes in the molar volume of insulin (deltaV(m)) upon adsorption were derived from the pressure dependence of the isothermal retention factor (k'). The values of deltaV(m) were(More)
The adsorption isotherms of butyl- and amylbenzene on silica monolithic columns were measured by frontal analysis. The external, internal and total porosities of these columns were determined by inverse size-exclusion chromatography. The adsorption isotherms are concave upward in the entire concentration range investigated. They were fitted to the(More)
Optimization of enantioselectivity in heterogeneous catalysis and chiral chromatography is a challenging task for the production of enantiopure chemicals. Enantioselective adsorbents usually consist of a surface with chiral receptors being either chiral molecules linked to the surface or chiral pockets formed by molecular templating of the surface. In both(More)
