Controlling the properties of the micellar and gel phase by varying the counterion in functionalised-dipeptide systems

Author affiliations

Abstract

The micellar aggregates formed at high pH for dipeptide-based gelators can be varied by using different alkali metal salts to prepare the solutions. The nature of the micellar aggregates directly affects the properties of the resulting gels.
