Alkyl-bis(imidazolium) salts: a new amphiphile platform that forms thermotropic and non-aqueous lyotropic bicontinuous cubic phases

Author affiliations

Abstract

New ionic amphiphiles with a hexyl-bridged bis(imidazolium) headgroup; Br, BF4, or Tf2N anions; and a long n-alkyl tail can form thermotropic bicontinuous cubic liquid crystal phases in neat form and/or lyotropic bicontinuous cubic phases with several non-aqueous solvents or water.
