Modular construction and hierarchical gelation of organooxotin nanoclusters derived from simple building blocks

Abstract

Mixtures of an appropriate carboxylic acid and n-butylstannoic acid constitute modular gelation systems, in which the formation of a well-defined ‘tin-drum’ nanocluster subsequently underpins the hierarchical assembly of nanostructured fibres, which form self-supporting gel-phase networks in organic solvents.
