Abstract

Polymerizable gelator 1 which has two diacetylene groups as well as two amide groups showed an excellent gelation ability for many organic solvents. Photoirradiation readily induced polymerization in the gel phase but the polymerization results were dependent upon the gelation solvent. It was shown that the three-dimensional cross-link of these organic gels resulted in new robust gels, retaining their gel fiber super-structure.
