On the syneresis of an OPV functionalised dipeptide hydrogel

Author affiliations

Abstract

We describe a new dipeptide hydrogel based on an oligophenylene vinylene core. After gelation, the initial network evolves, expelling solvent and resulting in syneresis. We describe this process and the effects in the bulk properties of the material.
