Abstract:This paper aims to study the effect of three alkyl quaternary salts on stability of colloidal sols further used as water-insoluble oligomers for encapsulation of an active flavonoid compound – quercitin. The preparation procedure is described and practical remarks on silica-based sol-gels are included. It is also demonstrated how to exploit the sol-gel preparation route in order to improve the thermal resistance of quercitin and to increase an optical function - fluorescence. The evolution in time of competiti… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
