Research of blood substitute formulations and their base materials is of high scientific interest. Especially fluorinated microemulsions based on perfluorocarbons, with their interesting chemical properties, offer opportunities for applications in biomedicine and physical chemistry. In this work, carbon K-edge absorption spectra of liquid perfluoroalkanes and their parent hydrocarbons are presented and compared. Based on soft X-ray absorption, a comprehensive picture of the electronic structure…

Hyperconjugation Is the Source of Helicity in Perfluorinated n-Alkanes.

This analysis indicates that hyperconjugative stabilization through σCC →σ*CF interactions are the underlying driving force for the origin of the observed helicity in perfluoroalkanes.

Supramolecular packing of alkyl substituted Janus face all-cis 2,3,4,5,6-pentafluorocyclohexyl motifs†

The study indicates the power and potential of this ring system as a motif for ordering supramolecular assembly and the molecules appear to aggregate and form higher molecular assemblies prior to compression.



Fluorination-dependent molecular orbital occupancy in ring-shaped perfluorocarbons.

A molecular orbital change from unoccupied to occupied orbitals for perfluorodecalin was observed, which was induced through the fluorination process, and a comprehensive picture of the electronic structure of decalin is provided based on soft X-ray absorption and emission spectroscopy.

Water solubility in linear fluoroalkanes used in blood substitute formulations.

The experimental solubility data indicates a significant specific interaction between the water and the alpha-(omega-)substitute atom (H, I, Br, or Cl) in the fluoroalkanes.

The electronic structure of perfluorodecalin studied by soft X-ray spectroscopy and electronic structure calculations.

Fluorine and carbon K absorption and emission spectra of liquid perfluorodecalin are presented and analyzed in terms of density functional calculations-configuration interaction and it is found that the lowest excitations must be associated with charge transfer towards the inner carbon atoms.

The σ* molecular orbitals of perfluoroalkanes as studied by inner-shell electron energy loss and electron transmission spectroscopies

Absolute oscillator strength spectra in the C 1s (280–340 eV) and F 1s (680–740 eV) regions of the perfluoro-n-alkanes from C2 to C6 and perfluorocycloalkanes from C3 to C6 have been determined from

A Molecular Orbital Theory of Reactivity in Aromatic Hydrocarbons

In the search for a quantitative correlation between reactivity and electronic configuration of aromatic hydrocarbons, the electron density, at each carbon atom, of the highest occupied π‐orbital in
