Abstract
It is known that alkali, transition metal and lanthanide salts can form lyotropic liquid crystalline (LLC) mesophases with non-ionic surfactants (such as CiH2i+1(OCH2CH2)jOH, denoted as CiEj). Here we combine several salt systems and show that the percent deliquescence relative humidity (%DRH) value of a salt is the determining parameter in the formation and stability of the mesophases and that the other parameters are secondary and less significant. Accordingly, salts can be divided into 3 categories: Type I salts (such as LiCl, LiBr, LiI, LiNO3, LiClO4, CaCl2, Ca(NO3)2, MgCl2, and some transition metal nitrates) have low %DRH and form stable salt–surfactant LLC mesophases in the presence of a small amount of water, type II salts (such as some sodium and potassium salts) that are moderately hygroscopic form disordered stable mesophases, and type III salts that have high %DRH values, do not form stable LLC mesophases and leach out salt crystals. To illustrate this effect, a large group of salts from alkali and alkaline earth metals were investigated using XRD, POM, FTIR, and Raman techniques. Among the different salts investigated in this study, the LiX (where X is Cl ,B r ,I ,N O 3 , and ClO4 ) and CaX2 (X is Cl , and NO3 ) salts were more prone to establish LLC mesophases because of their lower %DRH values. The phase behavior with respect to concentration, stability, and thermal behavior of Li(I) systems were investigated further. It is seen that the phase transitions among different anions in the Li(I) systems follow the Hofmeister series.

Hydrated CaCl2, LiI, and MgCl2 salts induce self-assembly in nonionic surfactants (such as C12H25(OCH2CH2)10OH) to form lyotropic liquid-crystalline (LLC) mesophases that undergo a phase transition to a new type of soft mesocrystal (SMC) under ambient conditions. The SMC samples can be obtained by aging the LLC samples, which were prepared as thin films by spin-coating, dip-coating, or drop-casting of a clear homogenized solution of water, salt, and surfactant over a substrate surface. The LLC m...

Highly conductive electrolyte materials are an essential part of many electrochemical systems, such as fuel cells, solar cells, batteries, electrochromic devices, and next-generation renewable-energy sources. The growing diversity in batteries and electrochemical cells increases the demand for novel electrolyte materials. For instance, in solar-cell applications, an electrolyte material with high viscosity and low volatility is desirable, together with high ionic conductivity. Electrolytes can b...

Uniform and homogeneous coating of mesoporous materials with an active (catalytically, photonic, electrical) nanostructure can be very useful for a number of applications. Understanding chemical reactions in a confined space is important in order to design new advanced materials. In this work, we demonstrate that an extensive amount (as high as 53 mol percent) of transition metal salts can be confined between silica walls and two surfactant domains (cetyltrimethylammonium bromide, CTAB, and laur...

The zinc nitrate salt acts as a solvent in the ZnX−C12EO10 (ZnX is [Zn(H2O)6](NO3)2 and C12EO10 is C12H25(OCH2CH2)10OH) lyotropic liquid crystalline (LLC) mesophase with a drastic dropping on the melting point of ZnX. The salt−surfactant LLC mesophase is stable down to −52 °C and undergoes a phase change into a solid mesostructured salt upon cooling below −52 °C; no phase separation is observed down to −190 °C. The ZnX−C12EO10 mesophase displays a usual phase behavior with an increasing concentr...

The effect of improving “solvent quality” of pure liquid CO2 with a heptane cosolvent on the phase behavior and micellization of commercially available surfactants has been explored using high-pressure small-angle neutron scattering (HP-SANS). The nonionic C12E5 was found to be highly soluble in both pure CO2 and the solvent blends, but no aggregation was detected by HP-SANS for any of the compositions studied, even up to 12 vol % surfactant. On the other hand, improving CO2 solvent quality by a...

In recent years, the number of non-aqueous solvents which mediate hydrocarbon–solvent interactions and promote the self-assembly of amphiphiles has been markedly increased by the reporting of over 30 ionic liquids which possess this previously unusual solvent characteristic. This new situation allows a different exploration of the molecular “solvophobic effect” and tests the current understanding of amphiphile self-assembly. Interestingly, both protic and aprotic ionic liquids support amphiphile...

The self-organization of the poly(ethylene glycol)(10)monododecyl ether (C12EO10)/poly(ethyleneimine) (PEI)/La(III)/water multicomponent system has been examined in the micellar and liquid-crystalline ranges. A step-by-step investigation of the catalytic effect toward the cleavage of phosphorus acid esters was performed for the following series: single C12EO10 micelles → ternary C12EO10/PEI/water micellar system → quaternary C12EO10/PEI/La(III)/water micellar system → liquid-crystalline mesophas...

The extent of aggregation of nonionic surfactants can be controlled by the composition of mixed solvents with two miscible glycols, ethylene glycol (EG)/propylene glycol (PG). Three nonionic surfactants bearing a common E 8 ethoxylated headgroup, but with variations in the hydrocarbon chain, have been investigated: octaethylene monododecyl ether (C 12 E 8 ), octaethylene monotetradecyl ether (C 14 E 8 ), and octaethylene monohexadecyl ether (C 16 E 8 ). The hydrogen-bonding solvents were EG/PG m...

The development of porous films with an accessible high specific surface area is important for designing new adsorbents, sensors, or catalyst supports. Here, we describe a simple method to prepare a silica foam coating using a calcium chloride-assisted evaporation-induced emulsification method. An alcoholic silica sol containing calcium chloride and a poly(ethylene oxide)-based polymer is deposited on a substrate by dipping. The evaporation of the alcohol induces a phase separation between the s...

Desiccants play vital roles in dehumidification and atmospheric water harvesting; however, current desiccants have mediocre hygroscopicity, limited recyclability, and high energy consumption. Herein, we report a wood-inspired moisture pump based on electrospun nanofibrous membrane for solar-driven continuous indoor dehumidification. The developed moisture pump with multilayer wood-like cellular networks and interconnected open channels is composed of a desiccant layer and a photothermal layer. T...

Purpose Metal salts are used in formulation of dry powder inhalers (DPIs) for different purposes. Recently the role of these salts in production of small, dense but highly dispersible particles has emerged. In this study the effect of some such salts on dispersibility and respirability of spray dried levofloxacin formulations was evaluated in normal and reduced inhalation air flow or by increasing powder filling in capsules.

Abstract Adsorption layers at the air-water interface formed from the soluble zwitterionic surfactant dodecylphosphorylcholine (DPC) serving as a soluble model substance for phospho-lipids were characterized with respect to their equilibrium and dynamic surface properties. To clarify the effect of ionic interactions with electrolyte present in the bulk phase, surface rheological properties upon addition of Ce(NO3)3 and Yb(NO3)3 were determined. In order to account for the surface activity of the...

Lithium salt (noncoordinating anions, such as lithium triflate (Ltf)) gel electrolytes may be key for the practical use of electrochemical devices. We introduce a new lyotropic liquid-crystalline (LLC) mesophase using Ltf, a small amount of water (as low as 1.3 water per Ltf), and nonionic surfactant (C18H37(OCH2CH2)10OH, C18E10). The LLC phase forms over a broad range of Ltf/C18E10 mole ratios, 2–18. The clear ethanol solution of the ingredients can be either directly spin-coated over a glass s...
