Fluorescent hydrogel formation from carboxyphenyl-terpyridine

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report the analysis of a novel terpyridine based supramolecular hydrogel which shows fluorescent properties in the gel but not in the sol form; the gel forms in a narrow pH range in aqueous solutions specifically in the presence of sodium ions, and contains between 98% and 99.2% water.
