Epub 2013 Apr 11.Soft molecular ellipsoids conceived from 3,4-di(dodecyloxy)benzoic acid (DDBA) amphiphile draw attention to monomer structure design, intramolecular -COOH headgroup twist (ϕ°) and cyclic-acyclic dimer switching through facial H-bond torsion (ψ°). Generically, precipitation in hydrogen bonded systems has been the prime phenomenon once the critical aggregation concentrations were reached in the bulk solution. Read More
