Abstract

The design of stimuli-responsive hydrogels is attractive but challenging. A multi-stimuli-responsive chiral metallohydrogel was constructed using a rational approach to design a functional metallohydrogel using chiral organic gelators. The as-synthesized metallohydrogel reported here performed remarkably as a visual sensor for discriminating between (R)-phenylglycinol and (S)-phenylglycinol. Furthermore, the metallohydrogel showed a significant capacity for adsorption and enrichment of Cr(VI) in aqueous solution. Besides this, by utilizing anion-induced transformation, the metallohydrogel could be controllably directed to synthesize different types of chiral metal–organic frameworks.
