Water-supported organized structures based on wedge-shaped amphiphilic derivatives of dipyrrolyldiketone boron complexes

Wedge-shaped amphiphilic derivatives of 1,3-dipyrrolyl-1,3-propanedione boron complexes, with one or no aliphatic chains attached at one aryl moiety and three hydrophilic chains at the other, exhibited formation of assembled structures in aqueous solutions

Scholarcy highlights

  • Wedge-shaped amphiphilic derivatives of 1,3-dipyrrolyl-1,3-propanedione boron complexes, with one or no aliphatic chains attached at one aryl moiety and three hydrophilic chains at the other, exhibited formation of assembled structures in aqueous solutions
  • UV/vis, fluorescence and DLS analyses suggested that the wedge-shaped amphiphiles exist in assembled modes in the solution state, and TEM measurements revealed that a balance of hydrophobic and hydrophilic moieties in the amphiphiles is crucial for the formation of organized structures in aqueous solutions as evidenced by the formation of spherical and cylindrical micelles
