Controllable heterogeneity in a supramolecular hydrogel

Author affiliations

Abstract

A dispersion of a peptide amphiphile into water forms hierarchical fibril structures, leading to a supramolecular hydrogel. We here report that there exists dynamic heterogeneity in the gel, which might be induced by the heterogeneous fibril network. The network, and therefore, the heterogeneity, can be easily regulated by changing the temperatures used to dissolve the gelator in water.
