Solvent-chirality selective organogelation by chiral aspartame lipids

Author affiliations

Abstract

We examined supramolecular gelation of propylene carbonate enantiomers with novel chiral aspartame lipids. Different gelation ability and stability were observed based on the combination of gelator and the solvent enantiomers. This work demonstrates that gelatorsolvent chirality matching can determine self-assembled nanostructures and gelation efficiency.
