Photoresponsive metallo-hydrogels based on visual discrimination of the positional isomers through selective thixotropic gel collapse

Author affiliations

Abstract

Incorporating the visual discrimination of 2,2′-bipyridine and self-healing properties, a novel photo-switchable metallo-hydrogel system is fabricated using a pincer-type Cu(II) complex and 2,2′-azopyridine.
