We studied the viscosity of semidilute aqueous solutions of sodium polystyrenesulfonate as a function of polymer and salt concentrations.
We studied equilibrium swelling in brush gels undergoing large uniaxial deformations in contact with solvent by using a combination of the Flory–Rehner and scaling models of gels and coarse-grained molecular dynamics simulations of swollen brush networks.
In this work, we report the synthesis and characterization of three conjugated polymers derived from poly[(thiophene)-alt-(6,7-difluoro-2-(2-hexyldecyloxy)quinoxaline)] (PTQ10) with the goal of developing derivates which are more green-solvent-processable.
This Perspective outlines some of the challenges inherent to polymer stereocontrol as well as highlights recent catalyst development in the area of asymmetric ion-pairing that has enabled control of both the configuration and conformation of vinyl polymers.
We employed liquid-observed vapor exchange nuclear magnetic resonance (LOVE NMR), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), and thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA) to show how trehalose and other sugars protect two model proteins: the B1 domain of streptococcal protein G (GB1) and truncated barley chymotrypsin inhibitor 2 (CI2).
We redesigned the original synthetic scheme of D18, particularly the key monomer, 5,8-bis(5-bromo-4-(2-butyloctyl)thiophen-2-yl)dithieno[3′,2′:3,4;2″,3″:5,6]benzo[1,2-c][1,2,5]thiadiazole (Br2-T2-DTBT), and replaced a few key steps in the original scheme that were hard to reproduce and/or low yielding with simple to operate and high yielding reactions.
This Account describes new reactions that have been developed in the Johnson laboratories at UNC Chapel Hill enabled by considerations of N–O bond cleavage.
Here, we show that in the presence of pyridinium tetrafluoroborate, [CpW(CO)3]− reacts further to form a metal hydride complex CpW(CO)3H.
The class of action spectroscopies described in this Perspective leverages recombination-induced nonlinearities to distinguish lossy (fluorescence) and productive (photocurrent) processes within the active layers of photovoltaic cells.
Using an alternative geometrical approach, under fast temperature oscillation, we derive a general design principle for obtaining the optimal catalytic energy landscape that can harness energy from a temperature-oscillatory bath and use it to invert a spontaneous reaction.
