Some previously synthesized (perfluoroalkyl)alkyldimorpholinophosphates, CnF2n+1CmH2mOP(O)-[N(CH 2CH2)2O]2, were found remarkably to stabilize heat sterilizable water-in-fluorocarbon reverse emulsions and to have a strong proclivity to self-aggregate into microtubular assemblies when dispersed in water. This series has now been extended in order to allow structure-property relationships to be established and product optimization to be achieved. A new series of even more fluorophilic compounds consisting in bis[(perfluoroalkyl)alkyl]monomorpholinophosphates, (CnF2n+1CmH2mO) 2P(O)N(CH2CH2)2O, was also synthesized. Preliminary surfactant activity and biocompatibility data are presented and compared to data obtained with non-fluorinated analogues.
