Hydrogen bond and lifetime dynamics in diluted alcohols


The similarity in hydrogen bond dynamics, obtained for a broad range of primary alcohols led us to conclude that the dynamics are essentially independent of the hydrophobic tail. It furtherdemonstrates that using an alcohol with different alkyl chains as a probe of solvation dynamics does not significantly change the outcome.
This may prove true for other amphiphilic probes as well, thereby providing previously unforeseen flexibility for future studies of hydrophobic hydration.
