The effect of doping the bisphenol A diglycidyl ether (DGEBA)/m-xylylenediamine (mXDA) system with gold nanoparticles (AuNP) has been studied with differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), thermogravimetric analysis, dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA), and dielectric analysis (DEA). The evolved heat (ΔHt), the glass transition temperature (Tg), and t...

Cholic acid is a trihydroxy bile acid with a nice peculiarity: the average distance between the oxygen atoms (O7 and O12) of the hydroxy groups located at C7 and C12 carbon atoms is 4.5 Å, a value which perfectly matches with the O/O tetrahedral edge distance in Ih ice. In the solid phase, they are involved in the formation of hydrogen bonds with o...

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons are versatile building blocks for conjugated materials and can be applied in molecular electronics. Pyrenes are known as the best organic chromophores, and pyrene itself is known as an electron donor. Likewise, quinones are promising electrode materials for lithium-ion batteries. The calculations were performed for...

The ester 3-(octanoyloxy) -4-nitrobenzoic acid is a standard for the assay of the activity of phospholipase enzymes (the main toxins involved in tissue-damaging after snake bites). Because of its amphiphilic nature, it probably behaves as a surfactant but the instability of the ester bond prevents its characterization. Its eter analogous, 3 (octylo...
