Photodimerisation of a coumarin-dipeptide gelator

Author affiliations

Abstract

Here we report a coumarin based hydrogelator that can form bulk gels, or homogeneous thin gels via an electrochemical pH drop. The gel can then be strengthened by post-gelation photodimerisation of the coumarin groups by irradiating with UV light.
