Hydrolytically degradable and biocompatible aliphatic polyesters are widely applied for biomedical applications as implants, scaffolds for tissue engineering and, finally, as nanocarriers for drug delivery. Aliphatic phophoesters, known since the pioneering work of S. Penczek in the 70’s, exhibit the same properties of hydrolytic degradability and biocompatibility and are thus more and more studied for biomedical applications as well. In the field of materials, anti-fire properties opens up new perspectives. The difference between polyesters and polyphosphoesters in terms of synthesis and properties will be highlighted. Polyphosphosphoesters are synthesized by step-growth and chain growth polymerization. When these polyphosphoesters are synthesized by ring-opening polymerization of cyclic phosphoesters, organocatalysts turned out to be very efficient compared to coodination processes. The last part of the talk will deal with te implementation of ROP of cyclic phosphates towards a series of amphiphilic PEO-block-polyphosphate copolymers of tailored hydrophobicity depending on the length of the lateral alkyl group. These polymers are able to self assemble into nanoparticles by direct dissolution in water, thus in the absernce of any organic solvent. The so-obtained micelles were studied by a set of techniques (Pyrene Fluorescence, Dynamic Light Scattering, Tensiometry). Finally, the influence of the hydrophobicity of the polyphosphate block of the micelle on the encapsulation and the release of a model drug was investigated. [less ▲]

An original and versatile method for the synthesis of a range of novel mannose-based surfactants was developed via metal-free photo-induced thiol-ene/-yne “click” reactions. This light-mediated hydrothiolation reaction involving a thiolated mannose was successfully applied to terminal and internal alkenes, dienes and alkynes, leading to monocatenary, branched, double-headed and bolaform amphiphilic carbohydrate esters,respectively. A surface activity study showed that these new compounds possess valuable properties and display specific behavior at the air-water interface. It also demonstrated the greater flexibility of the thioether moiety in the spacer of the surfactants produced via a thiol-ene reaction in comparison withthe triazole heterocyclic rings in similar glucose-based surfactants synthesized elsewhere by the alkyne-azide 1,3-dipolar addition.

The use of aqueous dispersed media, such as emulsions, has many advantages over solution processes for chemical transformations and polymerization reactions, i.e. limited environmental impact, ease of products recovery and increased reaction rate. Emulsions are usually implemented from a water/organic solvent mixture in the presence of a surfactant. However, supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO2) (Pc =74 bars; Tc = 31°C) constitutes an interesting alternative to the traditional organic solvents in these heterogeneous systems because it is inexpensive, non-toxic, non-inflammable and environmentally friendlier. In this context, we developed a novel class of surfactants for the stabilization of H2O/scCO2 emulsions, i.e. fluorinated modified carbohydrates. The hydrophilic head of the surfactant consists in a sugar moiety whereas a fluorinated tail is specifically located in the scCO2 phase. The strategies for the synthesis of these carbohydrates esters rely on selective lipase-catalyzed modifications of sugars and on the versatile thiol-Michael addition reaction. The ability of these molecules to decrease the H2O/scCO2 interfacial tension and to stabilize such emulsions will be presented. Finally, high internal phase scCO2-in-water emulsion (HIPE) were prepared with these new surfactants and used as template for the acrylamide polymerization. The monomer is polymerized in the continuous aqueous phase before removing the CO2 droplets (at least 70 % of the total volume). The resulting permeable porous polymers, called polyHIPEs, exhibit highly interconnected voids (cfr SEM picture) and should be valuable in many applications including support for catalyst, filtration process, immobilization of proteins, etc. [less ▲]

The use of aqueous dispersed media, such as emulsions and miniemulsions, has many advantages over solution processes for chemical transformations and polymerization reactions, i.e. limited environmental impact, ease of products recovery and increased reaction rate. Although, dispersed media are usually implemented from water/solvent mixtures, supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO2) (Pc =74 bars; Tc = 31°C) constitutes an interesting alternative to the traditional organic solvents because it is inexpensive, non-toxic, non-flammable and environmentally friendlier. In this context, we develop a novel class of surface active compounds able to stabilize water/scCO2 emulsions, i.e. fluorinated modified carbohydrates. The hydrophilic head of the surfactant consists in a sugar moiety whereas the fluorinated tail has a strong affinity for the scCO2 phase. These carbohydrate esters are prepared by a two-step strategy which takes advantage of the selectivity of enzymatic catalysis and the versatility of the thiol-Michael addition reaction. The new thiolated mannose intermediate is a useful building block for the incorporation of unprotected sugar moieties into complex molecules. The surface active properties of the fluorinated derivatives have been evaluated as well as their use as stabilizers for the preparation of microparticles and highly porous polymer materials in scCO2.

A novel class of surface-active carbohydrate esters is prepared by a two-step strategy that takes advantage of the selectivity of enzymatic catalysis and the versatility of the thiol-Michael addition reaction. The surfactant performance of the produced aliphatic, fluorinated and silicon based sugar esters are evaluated by surface tension measurements. The novel thiolated mannose, made available in this work, appears as a powerful building block for the incorporation of unprotected sugar moieties into complex molecules. [less ▲]

The lipase-catalysed esterification of sugars with hemifluorinated acid derivatives is reported for the first time. A series of mannose modified derivatives having fluorinated chains with different length have been prepared accordingly in moderate yield. A preliminary evaluation of the surface active properties of these hemifluorinated mannose esters revealed their ability to reduce the surface tension of water much more efficiently than their aliphatic counterparts.

The authors have generated two-dimensional foams by imposing an intermittent drainage in a Hele-Shaw cell partially filled with a detergent/water mixture. The foam generation associated with this process is reproducible and depends on the surfactant molecules composing the solution. A kinetic model can be proposed for the foam evolution. The structure of the foam is also investigated: the average bubble side number and correlation functions are measured. Distinguishable behaviors are observed for different surfactant molecules. This way of producing a foam is thus adequate for applied foam structure characterizations and fundamental studies. (c) 2007 American Institute of Physics. [less ▲]

We have studied foaming dynamics in Hele-Shaw cells partially filled with a soap and water mixture. A series of upside-down flips produces an intermittent wetting of the cell and leads to foam formation. As a function of the number of flips, an increasing number of bubbles composes the foam, until saturation is observed. Statistical analysis shows that the bubble size follows a Gamma distribution. Contrary to common belief, this foaming dynamics by "shaking" creates homogeneous foam, even though the system may pass through transient heterogeneous configurations. A mechanistic interpretation is proposed and included into a theoretical model. [less ▲]

The interaction of polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) with an anionic surfactant (sodium dodecyl sulfate, SDS), a nonionic surfactant (pentaethylene glycol monodecyl ether, C(10)E(5)), and a zwitterionic surfactant (lauryl amido propyl betaine, LAPB) has been investigated by means of pulsed gradient spin-echo NMR (FT-PGSE NMR), allowing self-diffusion coefficients to be determined. The results confirm the strong interaction prevailing in the PVP/SDS system, whereas no association has been observed in the PVP/C(10)E(5) and PVP/LAPB systems. Mixing PVP with two surfactants, namely SDS and C(10)E(5) or SDS and LAPB, results in the formation of ternary aggregates between the polymer and the mixed micelles. [less ▲]

The adsorption of binary mixtures of poly(vinylpyrrolidone) (PVP) and sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) and of ternary mixture of PVP, SDS, and pentaethylene glycol monodecyl ether (C10E5) onto silica has been studied by the measurements of the adsorbed amount of PVP and the heat of adsorption. The amount of PVP adsorbed from the binary mixtures decreases as the SDS concentration is increased, whereas the enthalpy change passes through a maximum at SDS concentration of ca. 4 g/L. The chain conformation of PVP adsorbed on silica has been estimated from the adsorption data in relation to the surfactant concentration. It changes from loops and tails to trains upon increasing SDS concentration. At SDS concentrations higher than 4 g/L, a comblike conformation is observed. The adsorption of PVP/SDS/C10E5 ternary mixtures depends on the polymer concentration regime. [less ▲]

The behavior of mixtures of a nonionic surfactant, pentaethylene glycol monodecyl ether (C10E5), and an anionic surfactant, sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS), was studied at the water−silica interface. In contrast to the C10E5 surfactant, which is adsorbed at the silica−water interface at pH 6, the adsorption of the anionic surfactant is not observed. In the presence of SDS, the adsorption of C10E5 is severely restricted as result of the formation of mixed micelles in solution. This behavior is consistent with the adsorption free energy, ΔGads, of C10E5 and the free energy of mixed micellization, ΔGmix.mic, of SDS and C10E5. Flow microcalorimetry (FMC) results showed that the addition of C10E5/SDS mixtures to silica precoated with C10E5 resulted in the release of the preadsorbed nonionic surfactant; the whole phenomenon is exothermic. Combination of calorimetric data (FMC and isothermal titration calorimetry), self-diffusion coefficients, and the regular solution theory led to the conclusion that the main driving force for the C10E5 desorption was the formation of mixed micelles by unimeric SDS and the released nonionic surfactant.

The experimental data have been compared to theoretical predictions based on the regular solution theory that takes into account the nonideal mixing of the surfactant pairs. Although good agreement between experiment and theory is observed for the SDS/C10E5 pair, some discrepancy is noted for the LAPB/SDS system, particularly at a high molar fraction of SDS. [less ▲]
