Li+-induced selective gelation of discrete homochiral structural isomers derived from L-tartaric acid

Author affiliations

Abstract

Two chiral structural isomers have been synthesized by molecular engineering of L-tartaric acid. In the presence of LiOH isomer 1 forms a thermally stable, fluorescent gel which exhibits interesting nano-cluster morphology, anomalous optical and rheological properties whilst 2 forms a non-fluorescent solution under similar conditions. The current–voltage (IV) curve followed a non-linear trend, rationally in close proximity to the diode characteristic curve.
