Abstract:
Two new amphiphilic derivatives of Vitamin C were synthesized. These molecules keep the same antioxidant activity of Vitamin C, but are soluble also in hydrophobic media. They produce nanoassemblies and organogels. We report here a detailed characterization of these colloidal assemblies carried out through XRD, DSC, SAXS, and electron microscopy.
