We have demonstrated that a one-dimensional molecular assembly created by an H-aggregated porphyrin.Cu(II) stack can be immobilized, without a morphological change, by sol-gel polycondensation of the peripheral triethoxysilyl groups. The resultant gel prepared according to this flowchart has gained a very high thermal stability as well as a unique(More)
The gelation ability of 10 alkylammonium (CnH(2n+1)NH3+ where n=4-11, 12 and 16) anthracene-9-carboxylates (1n) has been evaluated. In cyclohexane, 1(4), 1(5), 1(6) and 1(7) only provided precipitates whereas 1(11), 1(12) and 1(16) provided very viscous solutions. In contrast, 1(8) 1(9) and 1(10) resulted in gels. The critical gelation concentration of(More)
The gelation properties of a zinc porphyrin bearing peripheral urea groups (1 x Zn) were evaluated in the absence and the presence of several diamines. In aromatic solvents such as benzene, toluene and p-xylene, 1 x Zn only provided the precipitate. In contrast, 1 x Zn with 0.5 and 1.0 equiv. of piperazine formed gels, and the gel with 0.5 equiv. of(More)
Porphyrins bearing four urea-linked dodecyl groups (3a) or four urea-linked triethoxysilylpropyl groups (3TEOS) at their peripheral positions were synthesized. 3a tends to assemble into a sheetlike two-dimensional structure due to the predominant hydrogen-bonding interaction among the urea groups and acts as a moderate gelator of organic solvents. On the(More)
The influence of added polynucleotide on the gelation ability of nucleobase-appended organogelators was investigated. Uracil-appended cholesterol gelator formed a stable organogel in polar organic solvents such as n-butanol. It was found that the addition of the complementary polyadenylic acid (poly(A)) not only stabilizes the gel but also creates the(More)
