A series of low mass organic gelators (LMOGS) 1 to 6 whose chemical structures have in common an orthodialkoxyarene feature was prepared in order to compare the shape of their fibrillar network as investigated by small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) experiments. All members of the family exhibit a pronounced tendency to bundle formation by merging isolated fibers in extended packets of average diameter >500 A. Variations of the 2D packing symmetry are observed from hexagonal to square… Expand
Urea vs. carbamate groups: a comparative study in a chiral C2 symmetric organogelator.
The proposed organogelators are chiral molecules and are able to express chirality also at the supramolecular level, thus allowing the employment of electronic circular dichroism to gain insight into the molecular-scale structure of fibrillar aggregates. Expand

Gelation or molecular recognition; is the bis-(α,β-dihydroxy ester)s motif an omnigelator?
The universality of gelation in a range of solvent types suggests the gelation mechanism is a feature of the bis-(α,β-dihydroxy ester) motif, with SANS demonstrating the presence of regular structures in the 30–40 Å range. Expand
