These compounds are used as components of smart gels and are of interest for supramolecular chemistry. A gelling agent is a substance that is able to bind various solvents at low concentrations, and the resulting gel has a solid structure which rheological properties are similar to those of solids. Non-covalent interactions: dipole-dipole, van der Waals, electrostatic, hydrogen bonds and </span></span><span style="font-family: Symbol, serif;"></span><span style="font-family: Arial, sans-serif;"><span lang="el-GR">π-</span></span><span style="font-family: Arial, sans-serif;"><span lang="en-US">stacking, are considered as the driving forces for the formation a fibrous network by low molecular weight gelator. In contrast to decades of research into the gelation of polymers, proteins and inorganic substances, low molecular weight organic gelling agents have only recently begun to be actively studied. Their chemical structure is derived from urea, amino acids, carbohydrates, cholesterol and bile acids. Unlike steroid-based gels, information on the use of pentacyclic triterpenoids for the development of low molecular weight gelling agents is extremely limited. The interest in such systems is due to the fact that, like steroids, they have a developed, rigidly organized nanosized molecular platform, making them capable of self-association in polar and nonpolar organic solvents. In addition, the presence of molecules of these compounds in several functional groups that are easily chemically modified, low toxicity and biocompatibility allows them to be considered as promising starting materials for the pharmaceutical industry, in particular for the development of mild dosage forms.</span></span></span></p> Victoria Lipson, Karyna Kulyk Copyright (c) 2021 Tue, 21 Sep 2021 00:00:00 +0000 Magnetic properties of generalized polyallyl spin chain <p class="western" align="justify"><span style="font-family: Arial, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: small;"><span lang="en-US">The work is devoted to the theoretical simulation of low-temperature magnetic properties of generalized polyallyl spin chain with the antiferromagnetic coupling of the neighboring spins (GPSC) - spin model of a family of quasi-one dimensional molecular ferrimagnets. First, the exact energy spectra of Heisenberg spin Hamiltonians of the finite lattice clusters of GPSC with the spins of the main chain </span><span lang="en-US"><em>s</em></span><span lang="en-US">=1/2 and pendant spins </span><span lang="en-US"><em>š</em></span><span lang="en-US">=1 have been studied by means of the exact diagonalization method. The calculations were performed for different positive values of the coupling parameters for neighboring spins of the main chain of GPSC clusters. On the base of the above exact energy spectra and the Boltzmann distribution law the field dependencies of magnetization of finite lattice clusters are calculated numerically at different temperatures. In the result, for low temperatures the presence of intermediate plateau in field dependencies of the cluster magnetization has been shown. These calculations demonstrated the stabilization of the intermediate magnetization plateau with the growth of the spin coupling along the main chain of GPSC clusters. In addition, the numerical study of temperature dependence of zero field magnetic susceptibility of 12- spin clusters of GPSC gives the results which are similar to the 1D model of molecular ferrimagnets like necklace spin ladder.</span></span></span></p> <p class="western" align="justify"><span style="font-family: Arial, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: small;">Similar calculations of the magnetization profile were performed for infinite Heisenberg –Ising GPSC model with Ising type of the antiferromagnetic interactions between the neighboring spins of the main chain. The classical transfer- matrix method was used for this purpose. In the result, it was shown the presence of an intermediate plateau in the low-temperature magnetization profile of infinite chain model and the increase of the plateau size with increasing of the Ising coupling between the spins of the main chain.</span></span></p> Maksym Pokhmura, Vladyslav Cheranovskii Copyright (c) 2021 Thu, 07 Oct 2021 00:00:00 +0000 Problems of training scientific and pedagogical staff in chemistry in pre-revolutionary universities of Ukraine (19th – early 20th centuries) <p class="western" lang="ru-RU" align="justify"><span style="font-size: small;"><span style="font-family: Arial, sans-serif;"><span lang="uk-UA">The article identifies a number of problems that arose in the process of training students in chemistry at Ukrainian universities in the 19</span></span><sup><span style="font-family: Arial, sans-serif;"><span lang="en-US">th</span></span></sup><span style="font-family: Arial, sans-serif;"><span lang="uk-UA"> – early </span></span><span style="font-family: Arial, sans-serif;"><span lang="en-US">20</span></span><sup><span style="font-family: Arial, sans-serif;"><span lang="en-US">th</span></span></sup> <span style="font-family: Arial, sans-serif;"><span lang="uk-UA">centuries.
