Abstract

A new family of supramolecular hydrogelators are introduced in which self‐sorting and co‐assembly can be utilised in the tuneability of the mechanical properties of the materials. The in situ reactivity of the components of the gelators allows for system chemistry concepts to be applied to the formation of the gels and shows that molecular properties, and not necessarily the chemical identity, determines some gel properties in these family of gels.
