Metastability in a bi-component hydrogel of thymine and 6-methyl-1,3,5-triazine-2,4-diamine: ultrasound induced vs. thermo gelation

Author affiliations

Abstract

A new metastable bi-component hydrogel of thymine and 6-methyl-1,3,5-triazine-2,4-diamine, that can also cage a number of organic solvents, has different stabilities depending on its synthesis; the ultrasound induced gels transform more quickly into a crystalline precipitate than the thermo gels and the structural, thermal and photoluminescence properties indicate that the Ostwald ripening is the probable cause of the metastability.
