The increase in inhibitory potency after esterfication may be due to increase in electron donating ability of the alkyl of the ester functionalities as the length of alkyl chain increases the potency increases as well.
Many techniques have been used to functionalize CNTs, including esterfication (21), layer-by-layer self-assembly (22), radical polymerization (23), surfactant-aided noncovalent functionalization (24), in situ polymerization (25), (26), ring-opening polymerization (27), atom transfer radical polymerization (28), (29), and microwave-induced radical polymerization (30), One of these techniques, microwave-induced radical polymerization is quite fast and efficient.
The starting material 2-(6-methoxy-2- naphthyl)propanoic acid hydrazide (3) was prepared by esterfication of 2-(6-methoxy-2- naphthyl)propanoic acid (1) (see supporting informations) followed by treatment with hydrazine hydrate in absolute ethanol [14].
