Inside Cover: The High-Throughput Synthesis and Phase Characterisation of Amphiphiles: A Sweet Case Study (Chem. Eur. J. 10/2014)



original image

A sweet case study by C. J. Drummond, G. P. Savage et al. resulted in a library of amphiphiles with sugar head groups by using high-throughput click chemistry. Several of the amphiphiles self-assembled into complex three- dimensional structures, such as the bicontinuous gyroid cubic phase. For more details see the Full Paper on page 2783 ff.
