The fully 2'-5' linked isoTBAs formed unimolecular antiparallel GQs in the presence of [K.sup.+] ions, similar to how the unmodified, 3'-5'-linked TBA oligonucleotides did.
Accordingly, the mechanism of the morphologies obtained can be explained as follows: first, the copolymers are unimolecular in toluene, however, the addition of DMF to toluene decreases the solvent quality for dissolving the PDMS block.

It appears that iodine adsorption follows Langmuir unimolecular adsorption theory.
Al realizar la representacion grafica de ln k vs [T.sup.-1] de cada compuesto se obtuvo una linea recta con pendiente igual a -[E.sub.[alfa]]/R y un intercepto correspondiente al ln A; con estos valores fueron calculados los parametros termodinamicos, teniendo en cuenta la ecuacion de Eyring, que describe el factor pre-exponencial para reacciones unimoleculares en solucion:
Scorpion primers consist of a stem-loop detection region connected to a primer; the stem-loop region interacts with the extended primer resulting in a unimolecular detection event.
It is unclear if the disproportionation step is a unimolecular or bimolecular process, although, as Fischer has shown, the two routes are kinetically indistinguishable.
[9] prepared silver nanopar- ticles inside the highly stable hybrid unimolecular micelles with thermosensitive poly(NIPAM) shells.
This reflects the fact that the unimolecular process is favored entropically over the bimolecular propagation.
Third, each probe has two recognition sequences as in PCR but retains unimolecular hybridization kinetics, enabling high multiplexing with low concentration requirements.
At T [less than or equal to]40[degrees]C, unimolecular POOH decomposition is extremely slow, its rate constant is of the order of 8 X [10.sup.-12] [s.sup.-1] at 40[degrees]C.
