Selective shrinkage and separation of isomeric naphthoic acids via supramolecular gelation

Author affiliations

Abstract

The isomeric non-gelator molecules 1- or 2-naphthoic acid (NA1, or NA2) were found to form two-component supramolecular gels with an amphiphilic gelator LHC18, and the NA2/LHC18 gel underwent shrinking at room temperature. Using such properties, NA1 and NA2 were separated via gel shrinkage.
