Ask an Expert! - Selective synthesis of carbon nanorings via asymmetric intramicellar phase-transition-induced tip-to-tip

About The Event
Lu Hou’s paper reports a precise synthesis of carbon nanorings with a well-defined morphology and tunable thickness, based on asymmetric intramicellar phase-transition-induced tip-to-tip assembly via mixing hydrophobic long-chain octadecanol and block copolymer F127. This orientational self-assembly depends on the hydrophobicity difference of the intermediate’s surface, which triggers directional interactions that surpass the entropy cost of undesired connections and help assemble intermediates into defined ringlike structures.
