Investigating Structural Alterations in Pyrogallolarene-Pyrene Nanotubular Frameworks
Harshita Kumari, Steven Kline, Jerry L. Atwood
Small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) studies are performed to investigate the stability and geometry of hydrogen-bonded pyrene-filled c-hexylprogallolarene (PgC6-pyrene) nanotubular frameworks. In the solid state, hydrogen-bonded pyrogallolarene tubes are formed. However, scattering data for PgC6-pyrene assemblies in solution are best modeled as spheres of PgC6 with no pyrene guest. This indicates for the first time rearrangement of hydrogen-bonded tubular framework to hydrogen-bonded dimeric nanocapsules in solution.
