Application

  • 1-Hexadecanol can be used as a reactant in the synthesis of self-assembled m-diethynylbenzene macrocycles (DBMs), water-soluble pillar[6]arene for controllable drug release and poly(ethylene glycol)-based polymer for intracellular delivery of anticancer drugs.
  • It is used in building the template for sol-gel synthesis of mesoporous silicates.
  • It can be employed in the synthesis of anionic gemini surfactants which also exhibit antibacterial and antifungal activities.
  • High-chain fatty acid esters of 1-hexadecanol can be used as phase change materials (PCM) for thermal energy storage.

Two-dimensional (2D) molecular self-assembly allows for the formation of well-defined supramolecular layers with tailored geometrical, compositional, and chemical properties. To date, random intermixing and entropic effects in these systems have largely been associated with crystalline disorder and glassy phases. Here
