“In this article, we report synthesis
and characterization of the self-assembly behavior of coilrod-coil molecules, consisting of four biphenyls and a p-terphenyl unit linked together with ether bonds as a rod segment. These molecules contain lateral methyl or ethoxymethyl groups at 2 and 5 positions of the middle benzene ring of p-terphenyl. The self-assembling behavior of these materials was investigated by means of DSC, POM, and SAXS in the bulk state. The results reveal that self-assembling behavior of these molecules is dramatically influenced by a lateral methyl or ethoxymethyl Selleck Bromosporine groups in the middle of rod segment. In addition, molecule with PEO (DP = 17) coil chains of identical coil volume fraction to the corresponding molecule connected by PPO (DP = 12) coil chains, shows diverse self-organizing behavior that may result from the parameters of cross-sectional area of coil segment and the steric hindrance at the rod/coil interface.

“Amorphous semiconductors and chalcogenide glasses exhibit a high density of localized states in their bandgap as a consequence of structural defects or due to a lack of long https://www.selleckchem.com/products/nu7441.html range order. These defect states have a strong influence on the electronic transport properties. Thus, many theories attribute the “”resistance drift”" or the “”threshold switching”" effects, both observed in amorphous phase change alloys, to defects within the bandgap. The energetic distribution of states within the bandgap can be probed via modulated photocurrent (MPC) experiments that enable a spectroscopy of the relative density of these defect states by varying the modulation frequency at various temperatures T. It is also a common feature that the bandgap decreases with temperature. Nevertheless, the consequences of a shrinking bandgap with increasing temperature have been neglected in the classical analysis of MPC experiments. In this paper,
we propose to add correction terms to the classical MPC energy scaling to take the temperature dependence of the bandgap of the studied material into account to improve the accuracy of the determination of the defect distribution. We illustrate the efficacy of our proposed corrections by applying it to the study of disordered SGC-CBP30 materials such as hydrogenated amorphous silicon a-Si:H, a-GeTe and a-Ge(2)Sb(2)Te(5).

“This study concerns the synthesis of novel multi block polyurethane (PU) copolymers containing eco-friendly segments, taking the advantage of ionic liquids (IL)s under microwave irradiation. For this, L-leucine anhydride cyclodipeptide (LAC) was prepared and then a new class of poly(ether-urethane-urea) s (PEUUs) was synthesized with two types of ILs, including room temperature imidazolium (RTIL)s and molten ammonium type ILs.
