Tactoid formation in suspensions of Pf4 virus particles and the role of impurities

Abstract:

In this work, we first studied the synthesis of bent-core particles and if they could be used as model particles or for the formation of lyotropic liquid crystals. We used perturbation to obtain a kink, with temperature proven to be successful. We noticed a significant dependency with the base concentration and with the extension of TEOS pre-hydrolysis. However, these two parameters are hard to control, especially the second one, resulting in a synthesis hard to reproduce.

Our main...
