Bimodal self-assembly of an amphiphilic gelator into a hydrogel-nanocatalyst and an organogel with different morphologies and photophysical properties

Abstract

We design a flexible, amphiphilic LMWG consisting of donor and acceptor π-chromophores which self-assembles into a hydrogel and an organogel with different nano-morphologies. Different mechanisms of self-assembly evolve charge transfer (CT) emission in the hydrogel and LMWG-based emission in the organogel. Moreover, the hydrogel-nanostructure with surface exposed amide groups is explored for catalyzing Knoevenagel condensation reaction.
