4-Sulfonatocalix[6]arene-induced aggregation of ionic liquids.


The interaction of 4-sulfonatocalix[6]arene (SCX6) macrocycle with 1-alkyl-3-methylimidazolium type of ionic liquids possessing dodecyl, tetradecyl, or hexadecyl substituent was studied in aqueous solution at 298 K. Host-guest complexation promoted the spontaneous self-assembly into nanoparticles of 7:1 ionic liquid:SCX6 stoichiometry. Positively charged… (More)
