Two-component dendritic gels: easily tunable materials

Hirst, A.R., Smith, D.K., Feiters, M.C., Geurts, H.P.M. and Wright, A.C. (2003) Two-component dendritic gels: easily tunable materials. Journal of The American Chemical Society, 125 (30). pp. 9010-9011. ISSN 0002-7863

This paper reports the tunability of a two-component gel system based on dendritic l-lysine with a focal point carboxylic acid group and aliphatic diamines. The microscopic structure and macroscopic properties of the gel can be modulated by changing the concentration of the components, altering their molecular structures, or tuning their relative molar ratio. In the latter case, there is a complete change in the morphology of the gel that has a direct impact on its macroscopic properties, specifically its gel-sol transition temperature.
