Catanionic microemulsions formed by dodecyltrimethylammonium bromide (DTAB), sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS), n-hexanol, dodecane, and citrate buffer have been characterized by using dynamic light scattering (DLS) and spectroscopic studies. While the DLS measurements provide information about the hydrodynamic diameters of the microemulsion droplets formed upon(More)
In this paper, we have we have introduced a new intelligent soft-computing method of neutrosophic search with ranks and a new neutrosophic rank sets for neutrosophic relational data model (NRDM). Essentially the data and documents on the Web are heterogeneous; inconsistency is unavoidable in Web mining. Using the presentation and reasoning method of our(More)
Steady state and time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopic techniques have been used to explore the Stokes' shift dynamics and rotational relaxation of a dipolar solute probe in molten mixtures of acetamide (CH(3)CONH(2)) with sodium and potassium thiocyanates (Na /KSCN) at T approximately 318 K and several other higher temperatures. The dipolar solute probe(More)
In this paper, we explore the effects of the chain length of simple monohydroxy alcohol (C(n)OH, 2 ≤ n ≤ 8) and benzyl alcohol (C(6)H(5)CH(2)OH) upon the fluorescence dynamics of a dipolar solute probe, coumarin 153 (C153), in vesicles formed in aqueous solutions of two oppositely charged (cationic and anionic) surfactants in the presence of 0.05 mol kg(-1)(More)
Intramolecular charge transfer (ICT) reaction in a newly synthesized molecule, of 4-(1-morpholenyl) benzonitrile (M6C), in AOT/water/heptane reverse micelles at different pool sizes has been studied by using steady-state and time-resolved fluorescence emission spectroscopy. The pool size dependences of the reaction equilibrium constant and reaction rate(More)
Time-resolved fluorescence Stokes shift and anisotropy measurements using a solvation probe in [0.78CH(3)CONH(2) + 0.22{f LiBr + (1-f) LiNO(3)}] melts reveal a strong decoupling of medium dynamics from viscosity. Interestingly, this decoupling has been found to occur at temperatures ∼50-100 K above the glass transition temperatures of the above melt at(More)
A recently developed molecular theory is used to investigate the temperature dependence of the dynamic fluorescence Stokes shift of a dipolar solute in seven imidazolium ionic liquids. The temperature range considered is 278.15-338.15 K, for which experimental dielectric relaxation data (frequency range of 0.2 ≤ ν/GHz ≤ 89) are available. The theory used(More)
Temperature dependence of the excited state intramolecular charge transfer reaction of 4-(1-azetidinyl)benzonitrile (P4C) in ethyl acetate (EA), acetonitrile (ACN), and ethanol at several concentrations of lithium perchlorate (LiClO(4)) has been investigated by using the steady state and time resolved fluorescence spectroscopic techniques. The temperature(More)
Solvation dynamics in four imidazolium cation based room temperature ionic liquids (RTIL) have been calculated by using the recently measured dielectric relaxation data [ J. Phys. Chem. B 2008, 112, 4854 ] as an input in a molecular hydrodynamic theory developed earlier for studying solvation energy relaxation in polar solvents. Coumarin 153 (C153),(More)
The temperature dependence of solution heterogeneity in binary mixtures of water and tertiary butanol (TBA) and its effects on a chemical reaction have been investigated by using steady-state and time-resolved spectroscopic experiments within the temperature range of 278 ≤ T/K ≤ 373. Eleven different mole fractions of TBA, covering extremely low TBA mole(More)
