Transient supramolecular hydrogels formed by catalytic control over molecular self-assembly

Author affiliations

Abstract

The present work shows how transient supramolecular hydrogels can be formed by catalytically controlled molecular self-assembly. Catalysis formation of molecular gelators leads the self-assembly along a kinetically favored pathway, resulting in transient hydrogels. This work demonstrates an effective approach towards pathway-dependent supramolecular materials.
