From supramolecular polymers to hydrogel materials

Author affiliations


Supramolecular hydrogels formed by decorating benzene-1,3,5-tricarboxamide (BTA) units with amphiphilic ethylene glycol-based side chains are presented; careful selection of the substituents of the BTAs allows for the tuning of the self-assembly behaviour and hence the mechanical properties of the resultant hydrogel.
