|Title:||Tuning methyl 4,6-O-benzylidene alpha-D-glucopyranosides' gelation ability by minor group modifications|
dos Santos, DR
|Abstract:||Ten methyl 4,6-O-benzylidene alpha-D-glucopyranosides were synthesized for the purpose of studying systematically the effect of small group changes at position 4 of the aromatic ring on the ability to gelate organic solvents. The gelation properties are discussed on the basis of small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) measurements, and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) observations. Sol-gel transition temperatures were determined simultaneously by DSC and temperature-dependent FTIR measurements. The current study emphasizes that carbohydrates furnish not only valuable information about structural requirements for organogelator design, but also for molecular assembly systems in general.
