Gel to gel transitions by dynamic self-assembly


Dynamic systems are of great interest from the perspective of mimicking biology through to preparing useful and exciting materials. Transient supramolecular gels are potentially useful, but there are limited applications that require a gel that only exists for a short length of time. Here, we show how a dynamic system can be designed to prepare materials with properties that cannot be directly accessed using the same gelator.
