We have investigated the influence of molecular structure on the gelation behaviour of a range of Fmoc-dipeptides. Gelation is triggered using glucono-δ-lactone, which controllably lowers the pH, allowing the gel properties to be followed with time. This was observed in terms of the development of the gel strength using rheology. In general, we find that the ability to form a stable gel is determined by the overall hydrophobicity of the Fmoc-dipeptide. For the Fmoc-dipeptides investigated at… CONTINUE READING
