Probing gelation ability for a library of dipeptide gelators.

Abstract

Functionalised dipeptides are a class of interesting and useful low molecular weight hydrogelators. Here, we report a significantly expanded library of materials, including dipeptides conjugated to carbazole, phenanthracene, anthracene, pyrene and substituted naphthalenes. We assess the effect of using two different gelation methods; a pH-switch and a… (More)
