As the stretched conformation of a polymer is the entropically
least favored, reaching a completely stretched conformation is unlikely, as the force balance between the entropic spring forces - leading to a coiling up of the polymer segments - and the hydrostatic pressure of the water diffusing into the gels finds its equilibrium somewhat before complete stretch for the higher crosslinker concentration.
unfavorable process is compensated by the enthalpy gained due to the interaction between polymer and nanoparticle.
WHEN it comes to work and profession, the Havas Entropically
executive shared that the younger ones believe 'there's really...no such thing as a career.'
either to a still-point of inaction or to ceaseless
In Figure 1, a network-like architecture can be seen resulting from crosslinked net points (the black dots); the switch segment (the grey cube) connects them entropically
to form a given macroscopic shape .
In these experiments, [Ag.sub.2]S QDs-HSA complexes underwent both negative enthalpy changes ([DELTA][H.sup.[theta]]) and positive entropy changes ([DELTA][S.sup.[theta]]) (Table 2), demonstrating that the binding interactions are entropically
Instead of entropically
expanding and drifting as various forces activate it, this work, whose striated colors bring to mind a piece of candy, features three superimposed blocks of colored glass compressed into a cube.
They reported using ITC, that the interaction was driven entropically
, characterized by a slightly favorable binding enthalpy and a highly favorable entropie contribution.
Entropy decreased with the increment in drying temperature, indicating an increase in the order of the system, which is entropically
The self-assembly of monomers is an entropically
favourable process and this happens above the critical micelle concentration (CMC) of the micelles.
In other words, macromolecules restrict the available molecular space by their mutual impenetrability and repulsive interactions (termed as excluded volume effect) and thus entropically
stabilize proteins by favoring the more compact conformations of the protein.
