A low-molecular-weight gel prepared from a Cu complex of a protoporphyrin IX derivative exhibits an unusual elastic behavior as revealed by rheological studies. It possesses rubber elasticity despite the formation of LMOG by noncovalent molecular stacking. This is due to the feature of the present system that the gel fibers behave similarly to covalent polymers without bundling.
