Stable cross-linked lyotropic gyroid mesophases from single-head/single-tail cross-linkable monomers

Abstract

A single-head/single-tail surfactant with a polymerizable group at each end is presented as a new simplified motif for intrinsically cross-linkable, gyroid-phase lyotropic mesogens. The resulting nanoporous polymer networks exhibit excellent structural stability in various solvents and are capable of molecular size discrimination.
