Rigidity-stability relationship in interlocked model complexes containing phenylene-ethynylene-based disubstituted naphthalene and benzene
Structural rigidity has been found to be advantageous for molecules if they are to find applications in functioning molecular devices. In the search for an understanding of the relationship between the rigidity and complex ...
Light-operated mechanized nanoparticles
Mesoporous silica (MCM-41) nanoparticles modified by azobenzene derivatives, capable of storing small molecules and releasing them following light irradiation, have been fabricated and characterized. In the presence of the ...
Degenerate rotaxanes with electrostatic barriers
A synthetic approach to the preparation of rotaxanes (1–5·6PF6) incorporating bispyridinium derivatives and two 1,5-dioxynaphthalene (DNP) units situated in the rod portions of their dumbbell components that are encircled ...
Noncovalent functionalization of single-walled carbon nanotubes
Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) have attracted much attention on account of their potential to be transformed into new materials that can be employed to address a wide range of applications. The insolubility of the ...
A tunable photosensor
A pyrene-modified β-cyclodextrin (pyrenecyclodextrin)-decorated single-walled carbon nanotube (SWNT) field-effect transistor (FET) device was fabricated, which can serve as a tunable photosensor to sense a fluorescent ...
Azobenzene-based light-responsive hydrogel system
A deoxycholic acid-modified β-cyclodextrin derivative (2) and an azobenzene-branched poly(acrylic acid) copolymer (3) were prepared, and the association and dissociation of 2 with the trans/cis-azobenzene units in 3 were ...
