Abstract:
Design and synthesis of tetrabenzo[a,c,g,i]fluorene (TBF) derivatives are carried out to investigate the isothermal and non-isothermal cold crystallization (CC) behavior by various spectroscopic and analytical techniques. The unprecedented CC exhibited by TBF molecules is examined by systematic modification of alkyl chain length (C8–C18 even carbons) on both sides of the central phenyl ring. The CC of the TBF derivatives is examined via hot-stage polarising microscopy (HOPM), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and variable temperature powder X-ray diffraction (VT-PXRD). The experimental observation reveals that with increase in alkyl chain length from C10H21 to C16H33, the CC temperature and the activation energy significantly increase. The non-isothermal CC activation energy is calculated using the Kissinger equation. By employing DSC kinetic parameters, the overall activation energies of the TBF molecules (TBFC10 to TBFC18) are calculated, which are in the range of 62.18–90.35 kJ mol−1. Furthermore, the Avrami factors of the isothermal CC kinetics at five different temperatures are plotted, which indicates that with an increase in temperature the CC time is decreased.

THE VISION
THE MISSION
ABOUT I-STEM
It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
