Abstract

An amide-type copper porphyrin gelator having alkyldiacetylene tethers gives very transparent gel in Decalin, and the gel shows unique thixotropic behavior. One-dimensional aggregates generated in the gel act as templates for unimolecularly segregated polydiacetylene wiring upon UV irradiation on the surface. The polymerization along the aggregation goes to at least several micrometers long.
