    We study amorphous solid dispersions (ASDs) of the chloramphenicol antibiotic in two biodegradable polylactic acid polymers, namely a commercial sample of enantiomeric pure PLLA and a home-synthesized PDLLA copolymer, to ...
  • Ordered and disordered solvates of C 60 and CBrCl 2 H 

    Ye, Jin; Barrio Casado, María del; Céolin, René; Qureshi, Navid; Negrier, Philippe; Rietveld, Ivo B.; Tamarit Mur, José Luis (2019-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    The formation of co-crystals is often unexpected; however, the Buckminster fullerene, for which many solvates are known,is an excellent system to study this tendency. In the present paper, C60 and CBrCl2H co-crystals have ...

    We employ calorimetry, Rietveld refinement of X-ray powder diffraction, broadband dielectric spectroscopy and molecular dynamics simulations, to investigate the phase behavior, crystal structure, dc conductivity and ...
  • Anomalous behavior of thermal conductivity at high temperatures for molecular crystals composed of flexible molecules 

    Horbat¿nko, Yuliia V.; Romantsova, Olesia O.; Korolyuk, Oksana A.; Jezowski, Andrzej; Szewczyk, Daria; Tamarit Mur, José Luis; Krivchikov, Alexander (2019-04-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The temperature dependence of thermal conductivity ¿(¿) of selected molecular polycrystals consisting of flexible molecules was investigated within 20–260¿K. The materials were para-chloronitrobenzene, pentachloronitrobenzene ...
  • Structure and dynamics of the crystalline stable phase of 2-Chlorothiophene 

    Romanini, Michela; Negrier, Philippe; Barrio Casado, María del; Mondieig, Denise; Serra, Pablo; Zuriaga, Jose Mariano; Macovez, Roberto; Tamarit Mur, José Luis (2019-09-23)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The dynamics of a simple and rigid molecule (2-chlorothiophene) has been studied by means of broadband dielectric spectroscopy (BDS) within the low-temperature stable crystalline phase, whose structure has been determined ...
  • Reversible and irreversible colossal barocaloric effects in plastic crystals 

    Aznar Luque, Araceli; Lloveras Muntané, Pol Marcel; Barrio Casado, María del; Negrier, Philippe; Planes Vila, Antoni; Mañosa Carrera, Lluis; Mathur, N.D.; Moya Raposo, Xavier; Tamarit Mur, José Luis (Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), 2020)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The extremely large latent heat exchanged in phase transitions involving strong molecular orientational disordering has recently led to the proposal of plastic crystals as a feasible solution for solid-state barocaloric ...
