Air-water interface-induced smectic bilayer


, : Air-water interface-induced smectic bilayer. Physical Review. E, Statistical Physics, Plasmas, Fluids, and Related Interdisciplinary Topics 62(5 Pt A): R5895-8

We show, using surface pressure versus molecular area isotherms measurements and x-ray reflectivity, that the long diblock semifluorinated n-hexaeicosane molecules, F(CF2)(8)-(CH2)18H, form a stable smectic bilayer phase, noted M1, with a total thickness of 3. 3 nm, at an apparent molecular area about 0.3 nm(2), though in the bulk the used molecules do not form smectic phases at any temperature. We discuss different molecular packing models according to our experimental data and deduce that molecules are antiparallel with fluorinated chains outwards and interleaved hydrocarbon chains inwards.

The consumption of processed compound feeds increased from about 5, 000 tons (1939) to 758, 000 tons (1963/64). Together with oilcake, the total consumption figure was just over one million tons in 1963/64. Wheat-bran production rose from 134, 000...

The 5S ribosomal (r) RNA genes encode a small (approximately 120-bp) highly-conserved component of the large ribosomal subunit. The objective of the present research was to study the molecular and cytogenetic organization of the chicken 5S rDNA. A...

Dyslipidaemia is one of the major risk factors for cardiovascular disease in diabetes mellitus. Lipid changes associated with diabetes mellitus are attributed to increases in free fatty acid flux, secondary to insulin resistance. In the present st...
