Abstract

A heterotopic naphthalimide ligand N-(4-picolyl)-4-(4′-carboxyphenoxy)-1,8-naphthalimide HL is utilised for the formation of self-assembled soft materials. In the presence of K+ ions, L forms a robust photoluminescent hydrogel 1 which is reversible under thermal, mechanical or chemical stimuli.
