Gelation by supramolecular dimerization of mono(urea)s.

Hooper, Abigail E. and Kennedy, Stuart R. and Jones, Christopher D. and Steed, Jonathan W. (2016) 'Gelation by supramolecular dimerization of mono(urea)s.', Chemical communications., 52 (1). pp. 198-201.


Mono-ureido salicylic acid derivatives form hydrogen bonded dimers that mimic the gelation behaviour of covalently linked bis(urea)s. The 5-ureido salicylic acid isomers are much more effective gelators because of the lowered conjugation and less planar geometry, resulting in stronger urea···urea -tape hydrogen bonding interactions.
