Learning about Structural and Optical Properties of Organic Compounds through Preparation of Functional Nanomicelles While Avoiding Hazardous Chemicals or Complicated Apparatus
Langhals, Heinz; Eberspa┬Ęcher, Moritz; Hofer, Alexander
Journal of Chemical Education, v92 n10 p1725-1729 Oct 2015
The synthesis of nanomicelles in the aqueous phase on the basis of nonhazardous detergents is described where azulene and a naphthalene tetracarboximide are used in this experiment to teach the relation between structural and optical properties of organic compounds and point out possible applications. The experiment covers many aspects of modern-day chemistry; a simple handling of nonhazardous reagents makes the system suitable for basic chemical education even for comparably moderately skilled persons.
