Summary of "Diffusional Dynamics of Tetraalkylphosphonium Ionic Liquid Films Measured by Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy."

Fluorescence correlation spectroscopy (FCS) is applied to investigate the diffusional dynamics of hydrophilic (Atto 590) and amphiphilic (DiD) fluorophores in a series of alkylphosphonium ionic liquid (IL) films ([P4448][Cl], [P6668][Cl], [P66614][Cl], and [P66614][NTf2]) in order to determine diffusional parameters and to elucidate nanoscale structural heterogeneities within the IL. From the measured correlation functions, the diffusion coefficients of the fluorescent molecules are estimated, rendering values that span from 0.39-1.2 and 0.146-5.2 µm2/s, for Atto 590 and DiD, respectively. A decrease in the diffusion coefficients is measured as the alkyl chain increases, coincident with a decrease in their viscosity. Interestingly, deviations from the Brownian diffusion behavior of the fluorescent probes in the ILs are observed, showing a time-dependent diffusion coefficient in most of the cases. These deviations can be attributed to the presence of nanoscale structural heterogeneities in the tetraalkylphosphonium ILs. These results confirm experimentally the presence of nanosegregation in tetraalkylphosphonium ILs, which has previously been observed in molecular dynamics (MD) studies.

Pyrolysis of organic compounds at the temperature of a hydrogen-air flame to produce ionic intermediates which can be collected and the resulting ion current measured by gas chromatography.

Technique using an instrument system for making, processing, and displaying one or more measurements on individual cells obtained from a cell suspension. Cells are usually stained with one or more fluorescent dyes specific to cell components of interest, e.g., DNA, and fluorescence of each cell is measured as it rapidly transverses the excitation beam (laser or mercury arc lamp). Fluorescence provides a quantitative measure of various biochemical and biophysical properties of the cell, as well as a basis for cell sorting. Other measurable optical parameters include light absorption and light scattering, the latter being applicable to the measurement of cell size, shape, density, granularity, and stain uptake.
