Stereoselective synthesis of polyhydroxyl surfactants. Stereochemical influence on Langmuir monolayers.

Abstract

Herein is described the synthesis of surfactants featuring polyhydroxylated head groups. Three head groups were prepared via consecutive stereoselective dihydroxylations of a diene. By coupling of these with lipophilic tail groups six novel surfactants have been prepared. The monolayers prepared from four of these have been investigated at the air-water… (More)
