What a character! The ability of XeO3 and XeF4 moieties to establish lone pair–π and aerogen–π interactions with benzene, trifluorobenzene, and hexafluorobenzene is studied theoretically (RI-MP2/aug-cc-pVTZ). In addition, natural bond orbital, symmetry adapted perturbational theory, and atoms-in-molecules analyses are carried out to further characterize the interactions discussed herein.
- Fluoride-ion-conducting Polymers: Ionic Conductivity and Fluoride Ion Diffusion Coefficient in Quaternized Polysulfones
Dr. Luca Pasquini, Dr. Fabio Ziarelli, Prof. Dr. Stéphane Viel, Prof. Dr. Maria Luisa Di Vona and Prof. Dr. Philippe Knauth
Article first published online: 2 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cphc.201500643
Fluoride on tour: The three-step synthesis of a new polymeric fluoride ion conductor based on the fully aromatic polymer polysulfone is described. The F− diffusion coefficient in these ionomers is determined by pulsed gradient spin-echo nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and by impedance spectroscopy using the Nernst–Einstein relation.
- In Situ Small-Angle X-ray Scattering Investigation of the Formation of Dual-Mesoporous Materials
Dr. Julien Schmitt, Dr. Nadia Canilho, Dr. Marianne Impéror-Clerc, Prof. Jean-Luc Blin, Dr. Jan Skov Pedersen, Dr. Javier Pérez, Dr. Bénédicte Lebeau, Dr. Loic Vidal and Dr. Marie-José Stébé

Twice as good: A dual-mesoporous material can be synthesized from a mixed micellar solution constituted by a nonionic fluorinated surfactant, RF8(EO)9 (EO=ethylene oxide), and a nonionic triblock copolymer, P123. The kinetics of the formation is studied by in situ small-angle X-ray scattering and indicates the formation of highly hierarchically structured mesoporous materials.
