Cross-linked normal hexagonal and bicontinuous cubic assemblies via polymerizable gemini amphiphiles.

Abstract

The synthesis and lyotropic liquid-crystalline (LLC) phase behavior of a homologous series of intrinsically cross-linkable gemini surfactants are described. These novel bis(alkyl-1,3-diene)-based phosphonium gemini amphiphiles exhibit "normal" hexagonal (H(I)), Type I bicontinuous cubic (Q(I)), and lamellar (L(alpha)) phases in water, and can be photocross… (More)
