Abstract

Combining copper(II) chloride, 4-(1H-pyrazol-3-yl)pyridine and triethylamine in dimethylformamide (DMF) results in the instantaneous formation of a metallogel with as little as 0.51 wt% of gelator. The metallogel was found to encapsulate a luminescent lanthanide cluster, yielding a luminescent metallogel.
