The type of structure formed is dependent on the guest molecule size, structure I hydrates are more prevalent in natural gas flows because they form with methane, ethane and carbon dioxide molecules.
In other words, clathrate hydrates are clathrate compounds in which the host molecule is water and the guest molecule is typically a gas or liquid.
The new process involved introducing a guest molecule - in this case a 'buckyball' or C60 - on to a surface patterned by an array of tetracarboxylic acid molecules.
Au nanoparticles coated with these calix[4]arene heterodimer capsules leads to distinct surface plamon resonances whose spectral position depends on the dielectric constant of the guest molecule.
The stabilization resulting from the guest molecule is postulated to be caused by Vanderwaal's forces, which is the attraction between molecules that is not a result of electrostatic attraction.
They have determined the sites of solubilization within the core or at the interface of each guest molecule.
Lucia of North Carolina State University studied the host effect of surfactant/clay media on the aggregation behaviour of a porphyrin guest molecule, which combined many ideas about inclusions, colouration, and stability.
Guest-Host interaction between polymer and liquid crystal (LC) molecules (This interaction is dependent on the nature of both guest and host molecules and also on the concentration of guest molecule.
The more precisely a catalyst's pocket-line docking site matches the shape of a desired guest molecule, the more likely such intended molecules will dock and react.
lb) [30], Since inclusion complexation formation depends on the size match and binding forces between CD cavity and guest molecule [35], each CD type can have different capability for the inclusion complexation with the same guest molecule.
This effect implies that the groups in the host system become more ordered with increase in the molar ratio of the guest molecule.
