Self-assembled microspheres from f-block elements and nucleoamphiphiles

Author affiliations

Abstract

Hollow microspheres featuring a hybrid lipidcation multilamellar shell are prepared by hydration of a nucleoside based amphiphile with an aqueous solution containing either actinide or lanthanide salts. The physico-chemical data collected clearly indicate that the formation of these microspheres is a consequence of the following concomitant stabilizing factors: (i) hydrophobic interactions, (ii) nucleobase dimer formation and (iii) phosphate/f-block element salt binding.
